"Market" Photo contest

Here we go again! It's time to announce the new theme in the blogTO photo contests series. For this next theme we're asking for your take on "Market". Maybe you fancy the bustling scenes, or the entertainment of Pedestrian Sundays at Kensington? Perhaps you're into the fine cheeses or have an antiques fetish you satisfy at St.Lawrence? Perhaps you have a passion for trading stocks and drinking coffee on Bay St? They're all markets, and Toronto has them all! Remember, creative interpretations are encouraged! The details:

Current theme: "Market"
Starts: Now!
Flickr Tag: blogTOmarketcontest
Submission deadline: Sunday, Sept 24th, midnight eastern time

Only images that are properly tagged and submitted via the blogTO Flickr pool will be considered for prizes.

5. Be sure to submit before the posted deadline. Submissions received after the deadline will not be eligible.

6. Watch for winner announcements every two weeks.

7. Go to step 1 :)
