The MSA thanks you for all the entries we have received so far for the 2021 Photo Contest sponsored by AV Group.

This contest is part of an MSA project to collect images from the Miramichi watershed that can be used to create an MSA archive documenting life on the Miramichi and also for use on MSA social media sites and in MSA promotional materials and publications such as our calendar and annual report. This year we have increased our prize package with a generous sponsorship from AV Group - we extend a very big "thank you" to them for their support in this contest.
