It’s back! Last summer’s #WeAmaze in the West End photo contest was such a success that we decided to bring it back, with a twist! With December’s Lumiere 2014 event in mind, we want you to show us everything you love about the West End during the rainy months: the festive lighting, bustling shops, cozy restaurants, and especially the holiday spirit!

To enter, share your best pics of a wintery West End (the area of downtown Vancouver west of Burrard) on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook and use #WEAmaze and @WestEndBIA in the caption. We’ll review the entries daily and our photo editor Nelson Mouellic will select four (4) weekly favourites. Each of these weekly pics will be placed into a shortlist for a chance to win a West End VIP Package!

Follow the West End BIA on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for details. Contest closes January 12, 2015. No purchase necessary to enter.
