Montréal History and Heritage


April 11 to May 12, 2019

For the 40th edition of the Montréal à l’œil photography competition and on the occasion of Tourisme Montréal’s 100th anniversary, the Centre d’histoire de Montréal invited photo buffs to delve into our city’s architecture to highlight its historical character while showing heritage aspects that they appreciate.

The exceptional number of participants in this edition of the competition shows the attachment that both citizens and visitors feel for our metropolis. The photographers were inspired by the duality that characterizes Montreal in the meeting between the old and the contemporary, between Europe and North America, and between the freezing winter and the balmy summer.

A jury representing the partners in the competition analyzed the many entries and chose the four prize-winning photos.

In collaboration with Tourisme Montréal, Photo Service, Maison de la photo de Montréal, and the Conseil jeunesse de Montréal.
