- Time is Running Out on ‘Man Made’ Photo Contest; Snap and Share Healthy Photos to Win Prizes -

Snap to it guys. There are less than six weeks to go in the #ManMadeBuilt2Last photo contest to win prizes by showing how you live healthy.

Since last fall, young men 19 to 29 years of age in Haliburton County, Northumberland County and the City of Kawartha Lakes have been encouraged to enter the #ManMadeBuilt2Last contest. To do so, they can ‘like’ the contest #ManMadeBuilt2Last Facebook page, check out the monthly photo challenge, and post a picture to enter.

Photos are meant to show how young men demonstrate healthier choices to reduce their risk of cancer. There are monthly and grand prizes to win for best photo submissions, including gift cards, Oakley sunglasses, iPads and much more.

This month – January – the photo contest’s focus is on how young men are being tobacco-free or reducing their tobacco use. In February, the contest theme will be encouraging photo submissions that show ways of being sun smart. The #ManMadeBuilt2Last photo contest, which wraps up on February 28, 2017, is organized by the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit.

“There’s still time for young men in the area to snap to it and enter the #ManMadeBuilt2Last photo contest to win great prizes. We encourage photo entries that are clever and creative,” says Fyffe Hunting, a contest organizer and Public Health Worker with the HKPR District Health Unit.

Local residents who know of young men who fit the contest criteria are encouraged to promote the Man Made contest to them as well. Since being launched in October 2016, organizers say there has been a good response to the #ManMadeBuilt2Last contest with dozens of posts, likes and photo submissions.

The #ManMadeBuilt2Last photo contest is geared to young men because they are often a group that gets overlooked when it comes to health promotion efforts, Hunting adds. Funding for the Man Made photo contest is being covered through a special chronic disease prevention grant received by the Health Unit.
