Welcome to the Great Things 2019 Contest!

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!

Judged on creativity, photographic quality, as well as by popular vote, each winning submission will receive $100 and be featured in Coastal Community’s 2020 Great Things Calendar.

Photo contest runs: July 8-26

And be sure to check back from Aug 1-9 to vote for our favourite photos!
