While it’s no surprise that Canada’s home to a number of incredibly talented photographers, it turns out a number of them happen to be from Toronto.

This past summer, The City of Toronto and Nikon Canada partnered together to host the 2017 Snap & Share photo contest, which happened to attract more than 1,500 submissions from all across the GTA.

An additional 2,500 photos were also shared on social media using the hashtag #SnapShareTO, which were then narrowed down to two winners.

The moment that these photographers have been waiting for has finally arrived and the winners of the contest were revealed this morning.

Here are the winners of the Toronto Snap & Share contest.
