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.

We invite you to submit photos of your favourite places around Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.

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 $200 and be featured in Coastal Community’s 2024 Great Things Calendar.
