Photo contest celebrates PEI agriculture

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 Department of Agriculture is inviting Islanders to showcase and enjoy that beauty by participating in its annual “Celebrate PEI Agriculture” photo contest.

“Our agriculture industry is a key economic driver that supports our communities and also contributes to the stunning landscape of our province. I encourage all Islanders to get out, enjoy the beautiful scenery of our province and participate in our photo contest.”

- Deputy Premier and Agriculture Minister Bloyce Thompson

Categories include: Farmscapes, Commercial Fisheries and Aquaculture, Celebrating Farming Families, P.E.I.’s Next Generation Farmers, Fresh from the Land, Animals of Agriculture, Wild Side and Youth.
