Noreen Steeves’ photo from a plateau east of Taylor has been chosen as the winner of the 10th Annual Rivers Day Photo contest co-sponsored by Peace Valley Environment Association (PVEA) and Northern Environmental Action Team (NEAT).

Noreen’s description of the photo states “this viewpoint cannot be accessed by large vehicle as you have to cross ravines, gullies and even a creek. The spectacular view is surely worth the effort that it takes to get there.”

David J. van Unen’s photo, titled “Rugged Peace—Peace River and Rocky Mountains”was awarded second place and

was chosen for third place.

“This is the tenth year of the photo contest” said RuthAnn Darnall, chairperson of Peace Valley Environment Association (PVEA). “and it is so exciting that every year we receive photos from different people and from different locations along our beautiful river.”

Eleven photos were received and are now the property of PVEA and Northern Environmental Action Team (NEAT). All the photos will be posted on NEAT’s website at www.neat.ca. As in past years, the winning photographs were selected by staff at Peace River Alaska Highway Tourism Association.

PVEA was formed in 1975 to preserve and protect the Peace River Valley.
NEAT is a not-for-profit environmental organization that offers resource conservation educational and practical programs.

This year, BC Rivers Day is Sunday, September 28, 2008. It is always celebrated on the last Sunday of September.
