A beautiful book about Sudbury.

In 2012, we set out with a fun idea: let's make a photo book about Sudbury. We ended up with a lot more. To top the beautiful 128 page photo book summoned from the hands of 120 locals, the party and after party that left our feet sore, and all the other unforeseeable antics, we were left with a community. Our purpose had transformed from a simple book to campaigners for cultural awareness.

Send us any photo, any time.

Anyone can send in any photo from any era (dig into Grandpa's old shoebox) of Greater Sudbury. Take photos, find photos, send them in. To keep you on track, we’re going to invite you to explore specific themes throughout the coming months. Stay tuned via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and right here. We’ll keep the game fun & rewarding. We promise. Find out more about submitting photo in the FAQs.

Let's explore.

Go observe what's around you, get to know the shape of your city. These missions are optional, but we'd love it if you took part in them. You can post your photo on facebook or instagram, but be sure to add the appropriate #hashtag.

Video portraits of our inspiring citizens.

These people inspire us and we think they'll inspire you too. Our resident videographer Rob Roy will be introducing us to some of our neighbours in our brutally beautiful city in the following months. Follow along as we post a new video every couple weeks.

Can you keep a secret?

Last year's book launch party proved to us something that we've known intuitively for a very long time: Sudburians know how to party. We like throwing dance parties and might just be doing it all again (bigger and better) very soon. Keep following us on Facebook or Twitter to be the first to know. Shht.
