You're never too old to read a children’s book. Or make one.
We think making a children’s book is a great way to get in touch with your inner child and free your creativity in unexpected ways. You don’t have to have everything figured out when you start. Maybe you just have the kernel of an idea. Or a few funny sentences or quick sketches. The important thing is to let your imagination run wild. Free the book (and the kid) within. Here’s what you’ll discover in this week’s newsletter:
Custom alphabet books as easy as ABC

Winnipegger wins national photography prize despite blindness July 14, 2011 @ 11:30PM

Winnipeg Woman Who is Blind Wins Photography Contest – Photo Courtesy of CNW

 

TORONTO (Ontario) – CNIB has announced Tara Miller, a Winnipeg resident who is blind, as the winner of the organization’s national Eye Remember photo contest.

Miller’s stunning photo, entitled “Fortuitous Twilight,” captured the attention of CNIB’s celebrity photographer judges, who were not aware the entrant had any vision problem whatsoever, let alone having only 10 percent vision in her left eye.

Miller’s photo, which was voted to win by more than 2,000 Canadian users on the contest’s website, was one of 128 submissions by people who are sighted, partially-sighted and blind across the country.

Winning Photograph – Photo Courtesy of CNW

Miller, who began to lose her vision to glaucoma in childhood, says she takes photos by using what little sight she has to plan and frame the shot. Once shooting is complete, she hooks her camera up to a large 27-inch monitor and blows the image up to 200 percent so she can see the results.

“People with vision loss can do the same things as sighted people, but just in a different way,” says Miller.

As the contest winner, Miller and a guest will be heading to Quebec City, Quebec, later this year for a free weekend hotel stay and an opportunity to explore and photograph the historic city.

As a CNIB client who has taken advantage of many of the charity’s rehabilitation services for Canadians with vision loss, Miller says she has learned the skills she needs to live independently despite her blindness. Working one-on-one with CNIB’s specialists, Miller learned to travel on the bus independently, use a computer, and take care of her home and family.

“I am so proud of myself for my abilities and I thank the staff at CNIB for helping me,” says Miller.

Supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Pfizer, CNIB’s Eye Remember photo contest is designed to educate Canadians about the importance of detecting glaucoma early in life and to remember to be proactive about their vision health.

Otherwise known as the “silent thief,” glaucoma usually progresses slowly and painlessly; therefore, it’s possible to have glaucoma without noticing any symptoms or major changes to your eyesight. Glaucoma is the second most common cause of irreversible vision loss in seniors and affects more than 250,000 Canadians.
