Mtl Times photo contest – Congratulations to the bagel girl
Mtl Times photo contest – Did you hear about the Mtl Times photo contest on Instagram? For your information, the contest was pretty simple as the rules were: take a picture in our great city, tag Montreal Times in it and then, based on your creativity, the shot and other criteria, the selected participant would win a special place in Montreal Times Magazine. Now: here’s some good news for one of our participant.
And this is it, this is the moment the participant is revealed to everyone.
There is no doubt that IG account « iam_vibs » won the title since her picture’s location is one of the most famous place in Montreal. “It’s bagel o’clock” also caught our attention, not only because it is directly related to what is going on in the picture, but because of the bagel itself, is like a monarch for Montreal. As a matter of fact, the St-Viateur bagel is part of Montreal, as if it was Montreal ‘s official symbol.
She won because of the structure of her picture. She could have been in the middle, in front of it or even more, not there at all. But the way she is standing, the light, the bagel (obviously) is beyond interesting. The title she put is also a big plus (you already knew it, but I thought it had to be reminded). The bagel seems delicious, fresh and tender, as a real St-Viateur bagel should be. With both her bags (did you get it?) she clearly took the contest at its highest point.
Montreal is richer in color than we think. That is why she won multiple points in here too. Fall is at its end, but it is not a reason to already forget about the warmth it procures. That is what « iam_vibs » tried to remind us. This is why she won.
In a way, she reinvented the song: « I wear my sunglasses at night » into « I wear my sunglasses at St-Viateur Bagel ».
Well done « iam_vibs », you clearly deserve your place in this article.
Keep us posted with your several other pictures, we sure want to see more of your creativity. Remember tag us in all your photos: Montreal_Times
