Here in BC, the Knowledge Network (our public broadcaster) and the Ministry of Tourism have joined forces to help each small town in BC build a decent web-site. To this end, they put out a "call for photographers" (amateur or pro) - one for each town, to provide 6 photos, taken over 6 months, of their town.
Interested photogs were to apply, by email, by the 15th. Although I'd applied back on Feb. 2nd., the town appeared not to know I had sent it in! So, at their Tuesday night meeting, Council passed a resolution that staff contact me, to see if I was interested in the job! Yesterday, I got the call. Naturally, I said "yes" and the deed was done.
It's not a huge deal, but it does carry a $3,000 stipend, which for a retired geezer, like myself, is just fine! :-) Besides, photographing the town's events (which I would do, anyway) for a summer, should be a whole bunch of fun!
