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.

And like past years, Islanders are invited to showcase the province and its primary industries by submitting photos to the annual Celebrate P.E.I. Agriculture and Fisheries photo contest.

“Agriculture, aquaculture and fisheries are the economic backbone of our communities and they also contribute tremendously to the stunning landscape of our province,” said Agriculture and Fisheries minister Robert Henderson.

Photos can be submitted under several categories, with the final submission date set for Thursday, July 20.

Categories include farm-scapes, commercial fisheries and aquaculture, celebrating farming and fishing families, the Island’s next generation of farmers/fishers, fresh from the land or sea, animals of agriculture and the wild side.

Finalists will be showcased at the Celebrate P.E.I. Agriculture and Fisheries Old Home Week event. Category winners will be presented with their framed images after Old Home Week and receive $50 in Farmer’s Market vouchers. There will also be a people’s choice category and the winner will be selected by popular vote from the category winners during Old Home Week 2018. The winner will receive a prize valued at $500.
