#FinzSunsetMagic is now Live

Welcome to the #FinzSunsetMagic Photo Contest.

There's something truly magical about the sunsets at Finz Resort. As the sun dips below the horizon, the sky transforms into a stunning canvas of vibrant colors, reflecting off the tranquil waters of Shuswap Lake. We want you to capture that magic and share it with us!

Here’s how to participate:

  1. Capture: Take your best sunset photo at Finz Resort or nearby on the Shuswap.
  2. Share: Post your photo on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #FinzSunsetMagic.
  3. Tag Us: Make sure to tag Finz Resort in your post so we can see your beautiful sunset shots.


We have some fantastic prizes up for grabs:

  • Grand Prize: $100 Gift Voucher for Finz Bar and Grill
  • Runner-Up: Finz Hoodie or Hat from the Store.
  • Honorable Mentions: Our top 5 will be featured in our newsletter, on our website, and on our social media channels. We will provide links to everyone's social media channels, websites, blogs etc. (unless you request otherwise).

Tips for Capturing Stunning Sunset Photos

To help you get started, here are a few tips for capturing that perfect sunset shot:

  • Timing: Arrive early and be ready to shoot as the sun begins to set. The moments just before and after sunset offer the best lighting.
  • Composition: Include interesting elements in the foreground, such as trees, boats, or silhouettes, to add depth and interest to your photo.
  • Stability: Use a tripod or steady surface to avoid blurry images, especially in low light.
  • Experiment: Play with different angles and settings on your camera or smartphone. Sometimes the most unexpected shots turn out to be the best.

Spread the Word!

We encourage you to spread the word about our contest. The more participants, the more vibrant and diverse the collection of sunset photos we’ll have to showcase. Don’t forget to follow us on social media for updates and to see the beautiful entries as they come in.

How will the winner be determined?

The Finz Resort team will personally select the top 5 participants. Once the top 5 are selected, we will create a poll on our website and on our social media. Our followers will be invited to vote. At the end of the voting period, we will combine the tally between our social media accounts and our website. The winner will be the photo with the most votes after the votes are tallied.

The top 5 participants will be notified via email once they are selected, and the poll will be released shortly thereafter.

The Prize winner's will be announced and tagged on our social media and we will reach out via direct message to contact them.
