Pic Picks

The Link’s photo blog. Selections of our best pictures each week, from sports, arts, news and beyond.

  • Photos of the Year

    The year may not technically be over yet, but as the first half of Volume 33 wraps up, a lot of us at The Link are looking back on the semester.

    Our office is filled with people frantically multi-tasking while they write essays, study for finals and edit articles for their section. There may be absolutely zero snow on the ground, and it may be 9 Celsius as I write this, but it’s still December, and ‘tis the season for a year-in-review blog post.

    It can be hard to narrow down all of the photos I receive every week to a few that make it to print, and that makes the photo blog that much more important.

    I present to you, dear readers, a selection of my favourite photos from the past few months. Photos like these make my job as rewarding as it is and help to, in my opinion, make The Link one of the strongest student newspapers in the country.

    See you in the new year!

  • Take Back the Night

    The annual Take Back the Night march took place last Friday. Organized by the 2110 Centre for Gender Advocacy, the event was part of the Centre’s campaign to construct a sexual assault centre at Concordia. Both the Concordia Student Union and the Women’s Studies Student Association have voted in favour of creating such a centre, but the university has yet to make a move.

  • Photo of the Week

    Stingers right-winger Alexandre Monahan tries to steal the puck from Carleton Ravens forward Ryan Berard during last Saturday’s game. The Stingers fell to the Ravens 3-2, with head coach Kevin Figsby citing a lack of consistent effort as the reason for the loss.

  • Tagging in St. Henri

    Montreal is covered in graffiti, from huge murals to smaller tags it’s hard to go a block without seeing some slice of city’s art scene. Here’s a sample of what’s out there. Submit your neighbourhood graffiti shots to photo@thelinknewspaper.ca for a spot on the blog!

  • Sports of the Week

    This week saw game on top of game. On Friday, the Concordia Stingers men’s rugby team took on the Sherbrooke Vert et Or for the semi-finals, winning the game 31-17. Over on the ice, the women’s hockey team lost 3-1 to McGill. Here’s our pick of the top photos from the two games.
