Winner of the Authentic Seacoast Photo Contest Announced

The Authentic Seacoast™ Properties today announced Giselle Sceles of Antigonish as the winner of the Authentic Seacoast Photo Contest.

The Authentic Seacoast Photo Contest invited people to share photographs that capture the open seacoast spirit of the Nova Scotia’s Authentic Seacoast, a vast region stretching along the more than 600 kilometres of shoreline of Chedabucto Bay.

The contest winner, Gisele Sceles, submitted a photo of the Salmon River, a renowned Atlantic Salmon and trout fishing river that flows into the head of Chedabucto Bay. Ms. Sceles will receive an Authentic Seacoast Getaway Package for two at Osprey Shores Golf Resort, one of Atlantic Canada’s most picturesque golf resorts.

“We had so many beautiful photos of the Chedabucto Bay region and the vast range of recreational activities that await travellers to the Authentic Seacoast,” said General Manager Audrey Firth in announcing the winner. “Giselle’s photograph captures the beauty of one of Nova Scotia’s best salmon fishing rivers.”

Chris Cook of Mulgrave received the runner-up prize of a Rare Bird Pub & Eatery gift certificate for his photo of traditional fishing huts at Hazel Hill on the southern shore of Chedabucto Bay.

By offering the Authentic Seacoast Photo contest, the Authentic Seacoast™ Properties are building awareness of the beauty of Nova Scotia’s Authentic Seacoast region and helping develop the area as one of Nova Scotia’s leading travel and getaway destinations.
