Great Things Photo Contest

About the Contest

This Year’s Theme

Welcome back to the Annual GREAT THINGS photo contest.

We have been running the GREAT THINGS photo contest for over a decade. Once again, we are excited to see your submissions of the best that Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands have to offer – local events, beaches, trails, city centres and more!

Each winning submission will receive $200 and a spot in our 2025 GREAT THINGS calendar.

Photos that are in landscape (rather than portrait) will have a better chance of winning since the calendar images are printed approx. 11” wide x 8” high.

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 2025 Great Things Calendar.
