Photo contest celebrates agriculture

Islanders are invited to showcase the province and its primary industries by entering the annual Celebrate PEI Agriculture Photo Contest.

With rolling hills, roadside market stands, busy harbours, and animals big and small, Prince Edward Island’s primary industries are a great inspiration for beauty. 

“The Island’s primary industries are the foundation of our communities and they also contribute to the spectacular landscape,” Agriculture and Fisheries Minister Bloyce Thompson said.

“I encourage Islanders to get outdoors, take some photos of our beautiful Island scenery and take part in this contest.”

Photos can be submitted until July 19 in the following seven categories:

  • Farmscapes;
  • Commercial Fisheries and Aquaculture;
  • Celebrating Farming Families;
  • PEI’s Next Generation Farmers;
  • Fresh from the Land;
  • Animals of Agriculture; and
  • the Wild Side.

Finalists will be showcased at the Celebrate PEI Agriculture Old Home Week event. Category winners will be presented with their framed images after Old Home Week and will receive a $50 Farmer’s Market Voucher.

A special People’s Choice category winner will be selected by popular vote from the category winners during Old Home Week 2019. The winner will receive a grand prize valued at $500.
