Through Our Waterloo Windows submission form

Waterloo is a caring community. Throughout our isolation, there have been many generous acts of caring.

Share your drawings, photographs, stories, poems and thoughts of positivity.

Submission ideas:

  • Signs, notes, and images of chalk drawings that your neighbours have left out for healthcare workers, helpers, essential workers, or those on the front lines
  • Messages of positivity, kindness, or stories of neighbourly acts that have taken place
  • Drawings, paintings, photographs, or collages of time spent
  • Creative musings, poetry, sheet music, or writing

Submissions will be assembled into a community exhibit that will be shared on social media.

The images will also be assembled into an exhibit that will be hosted at the Visitor and Heritage Information Centre in the future. With this in mind, we want to ensure that all submissions are sent to in useable formats.

Please consider the following when attaching your submission:

  • If you have a scanner available, images can be scanned and submitted as a PDF or as an JPG
  • If you are taking a photograph of your project, make sure it is centred and well lit
  • When taking photos, be conscious of what is in the background
  • Please make sure images are cropped to the best of your ability
  • All participants are encouraged to autograph or watermark their submissions
  • Please be sure to submit the highest quality images available to ensure they look great when they are reproduced



Allowed extensions pdf, doc, docx, xls, xlsx, jpg, jpeg, gif, png, tif, MP4, MOV, M4V, MP3
