IAlgonquin Art Contest Winnersn 1912 Tom Thomson stepped off the train an into Algonquin Park to start his iconic journey to capture the essence of Algonquin.  100 years later we’re still inspired by the beauty of the landscape, wildlife and even textures and colours the park offers up.  In the fall of 2012 we announced our first Algonquin Art Contest.  Our plan was to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Tom Thomson first stepping foot in Algonquin Park to start his iconic painting journey.  By the end of the contest we had accumulated 90 entries in our contest across our Professional, Amateur and Child categories.
