National Competition for People with Disabilities: Volunteer Opportunities for Photography Professionals!

Abilympics Canada Association needs experienced professionals to join its team to co-ordinate the first-ever National Skills Competition for Persons with Disabilities in photography. 

The event will take place in conjunction with the Skills Canada National Competition in June, 2013 at BC Place in Vancouver. The two-day competition will feature representatives from each province/territory who will compete for the chance to win gold at this large-scale event.

The purpose of the competition is to enhance the skills of the participants and showcase their talents to the thousands of spectators at the event.

Abilympics is seeking volunteers from the Vancouver area to represent British Columbia on its National Technical Committee. The committee, which is made up of five representatives from across Canada will design all aspects of the photography competition – the projects(s),  determining equipment, lead in the evaluation, judging criteria, etc. This position will also lead the planning for a provincial skills competition in B.C.

Sound interesting? This is an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to expand their network and work collaboratively with others to improve the lives of persons with disabilities in Canada.
