Photo con­test puts fo­cus on P.E.I. agri­cul­ture

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ISLAND WEEKEND -

Prince Ed­ward Is­land’s nat­u­ral beauty is an in­spi­ra­tion.

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 the province by cap­tur­ing these mem­o­ries with a photo to be en­joyed for years to come.

The 2015 Celebrate P.E.I. Agri­cul­ture photo con­test has seven cat­e­gories: farm­scapes — P.E.I’s agri­cul­tural land­scapes form­ing scenic vis­tas; an­i­mals of agri­cul­ture — wooly, furry, feathered or fluffy; cel­e­brat­ing farm fam­i­lies — Cap­ture an im­age of at least two fam­ily mem­bers; P.E.I.’s fu­ture farm­ers — youth show­ing a pas­sion for farm­ing and food pro­duc­tion; fresh from the farm — show off your culi­nary tal­ents with raw or pre­pared P.E.I. food; new per­spec­tive — a unique glimpse of agri­cul­ture from a dif­fer­ent point of view; the wild side — wildlife in their nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment.

Fi­nal­ists will be show­cased at the Celebrate P.E.I. Agri­cul­ture dis­play at Old Home Week 2015. The Peo­ple’s Choice Award will be se­lected by pop­u­lar vote from the cat­e­gory win­ners dur­ing Old Home Week.

For 2015, there will again be an As Youth See It award. It will be cho­sen from an en­try of a pho­tog­ra­pher 18 years of age or younger.

Sub­mis­sion dead­line is Fri­day, July 24. For full con­test de­tails, visit gov.pe.ca/agri­cul­ture/ag­ripho­to­con­test or by call 1-866-PEIFARM (734-32776).
