Megaphone's Hope in Shadows calendar features amazing community photography from the DTES - this year we chose some of the best of 12 years of award-winning photography. The Voting process is now closed, and the 2016 calendar is being sold on the streets by low-income and homeless vendors. These 26 photos are from 12 years of the annual Hope in Shadows photography contest. From 2003-2014, Hope in Shadows handed out 200+ recyclable cameras to people in the DTES community and they had 3 days to take pictures. Each year, 40 photos were chosen as winners, and 13 of those photos made it into the annual Hope in Shadows calendar. This year, 26 photos were chosen from the past 12 years of winning photos for this year's finalists. 13 of the 26 photos were chosen for the 2016 Calendar.
