15 Great #WeAreWinter Photos

15 Great #WeAreWinter Photos

By Jessica Sammut

We asked for your #WeAreWinter contest photos, and you delivered, Canada. Throughout January, Canadians submitted photos on Facebook, Twitter,  and Instagram to show us how they embrace the elements.

The fun doesn’t stop here though. Continue snapping those photos for a chance to be featured in the Olympic Lens: Your Fan-Powered Photo Experience and look into the Olympic Experience (inside and out) of the Games.

Finally, we couldn’t resist showcasing some of our favourite entries from across the country. Scroll through 15 great photos from the contest and you’ll see exactly why #WeAreWinter!
