Kootenay Food PHOTO CONTEST!


Kootenay Food is seeking submissions for our first ever Farm, Food + Animal Photo Contest! This contest runs from November 1-30, 2017 and we’ve got three great grand prizes to give away to the chosen winner in each category.

We are looking for high quality, vivid photographs, in the following categories:

Farm – Capture any aspect of your farm, be it scenery, your favourite barn, or work photo.

Food – Close up images of your harvest (not your prepared dinner!). We want to see what you’re growing!

Animal – Raise animals on your farm? This category is for you! From goats to cows to pigs to your best friend farm dog, let’s see those animals!

Photographs submitted to Kootenay Food will be input into our database of regional images for us to draw from for our website, social media sites and/or promotional materials. We strive to always credit our sources, so you + your farm will receive recognition if/when we use your image in the future.

We also create our own sets of greeting cards and visually stunning calendars. If your image is chosen for either of these initiatives, you will be gifted a package of cards or calendar featuring your image!

GOOD LUCK! We look forward to seeing images that capture all seasons and aspects of our local food shed!
