      Downtown Eastside residents are getting ready to snap images of their neighbourhood as part of the 10th annual Hope in Shadows photography contest.

      The three-day competition kicks off June 2, when the expected 200 participants receive free, single-use cameras.

      A selection of winning photos from the Pivot Legal Society contest will be featured in the 2013 Hope in Shadows Calendar. The calendar launches in October.

      Each year, homeless and low-income vendors sell the calendars on the streets of Vancouver and Victoria and keep half of the profits.
