Submit photo for Celebrate PEI Agriculture and Fisheries Photo Contest

Prince Edward Island is remarkably striking this time of year. The gently sloping hillsides are a colourful delight with freshly cut forage, newly planted cereal and blueberry fields in blossom. Cattle graze on sunny hillsides, while foxes wander through grassy pastures.

Celebrate the beauty of our province by capturing these moments with a photo to be enjoyed for years to come.
