POW WOW PHOTO CONTEST

JEDI is really excited about the New Brunswick Pow Wow trail starting in St. Mary’s, NB. It travels through many First Nation communities in New Brunswick and finishes up in Kingsclear in September. If you follow the trail, you'll have a chance to experience the cultural pride, listen to the powerful beat of the drums and see the dancers dressed in their full regalia.

JEDI wants to share this experience with you and to do this, we want to see your photos. 

Each week we will have a photo contest where you can submit your pow wow photos or short videos to JEDI's Facebook page or to contests@jedinb.ca. Once our fans pick a favourite, we will award the person who submitted the winning photo or video a $50 gift card for a local business establishment. 

At the end of the Pow Wow trail we will award a grand prize valued at $500 to one of the submissions for any of the 11 contests. 

 

GRAND PRIZE DETAILS:

Pow Wow Contest Grand Prize 2016

This year’s grand prize features a Native Mask Carving done by Artist Cyril Sacobie of Kingsclear First Nation, a Protocol Dronium One Quadcopter Drone Ready-to-Fly which includes a camera and controller, a $75 Wolastoq Wharf Gift Card, a Beaded Dream Catcher from Melissa Sappier, Skyden Creations of Woodstock First Nation, and two Prints by Artists Pauline Young and Philip Young from Metepenagiag.

JEDI would like to thank RBC Royal Eagles for being a sponsor of JEDI's Pow Wow photo contests for the last 3 years!

 

Each entry from all of the 11 contests is eligible to win the $500 GRAND PRIZE package. All entries, from each contest, will be entered into a random draw for the Grand Prize so even non-winners of the individual photo contests are eligible to win the grand prize package valued at over $500. The draw for the grand prize package will take place in October 2016 after JEDI's final Pow Wow photo contest. 

The winner of the grand prize will be notified through Facebook messaging or email. The grand prize winner must answer a mathematical, skill-testing question. If the question is answered incorrectly another winner will be chosen.

 

 

 

 

CONTEST DETAILS:

The contest will be divided into 11 sub-contests; each one corresponding to a First Nation Pow Wow in NB.

Each sub-contest will run for 6 days. No purchase required. During those 6 days, please submit your photos or short videos (no longer than 2 minutes) to JEDI at https://www.facebook.com/JEDINB or contests@jedinb.ca to be entered to win a $50 gift card to a local business.

Each contest will run from the start date of the First Nation Pow Wow and continue on for 6 days (details below). During this time you can post photos or video of the local Pow Wow to JEDI’s Facebook page or email photos to contests@jedinb.ca. Each photo or video is worth one entry into the contest. At the end of the 6 days, once we receive all of the submissions, we will put all of the submissions into an album on our Facebook page and people will have 5 days to vote (“Like”) their favourite. The photo or video with the highest number of votes will be the winner and will win a $50 gift card to a local business.

Updated contest information will be posted on JEDI’s Facebook page as each contest starts. Be sure to “Like” JEDI’s Facebook page to stay up-to-date on all the Pow Wow contests and what’s happening with JEDI.
