Great Things Photo Contest

About the Contest

This Year’s Theme

The Annual GREAT THINGS photo contest is back! And it is clear that you love where you live! For over a decade we have been inundated with beautiful photographs of local events, beaches, trails and city centres. This year we are trying something new… our first ever GREAT THINGS theme.

We invite you to submit photos of your favourite places around Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands – we are calling it:

“Insiders Know Best.”

As Islanders, we know all its secrets: the best places to swim, fish, hike, shop and play! We invite you to share your insider knowledge … whatever (and wherever) that may be!


How is it Judged?

Judged on creativity, photographic quality, as well as by popular vote.


What is the Prize?

Each winning submission will receive $100 and be featured in Coastal Community’s 2021 Great Things Calendar.
