We’ve been inspired by the new book Vancouver Island: Imagine, which features beautiful photos from across this gorgeous island of ours, and now, we’re hoping to be inspired by you!

Vancouver Island: Imagine, featuring photos by award-winning photographer Boomer Jerritt and text by bestselling author Peter Grant, includes great photos from Chemainus, Cedar-Yellow Point and Crofton, and we’re sure our readers have beautiful photos from this area too. We’d love to see why you love Vancouver Island and the Cowichan Valley!

So, we’re launching a new Vancouver Island: Imagine Photo Contest. Submit a photo you feel best represents Vancouver Island and its people, and you could win a copy of the book.

Jerritt and Grant will be our celebrity judges, and they will choose their favourite Judge’s Choice photo in three categories: Vancouver Island, Ladysmith (including Shell Beach, Cedar, Yellow Point and North Oyster) and Chemainus (including Saltair and Crofton).

To enter the contest, please click on “Contests” on the top right at www.ladysmithchronicle.com. Please upload a high-resolution JPG with a caption and include your full name, phone number and e-mail address.

The contest closes Feb. 16, and you can enter more than one photo.

Winners will receive a copy of Vancouver Island: Imagine, courtesy of MacIntyre Purcell Publishing Inc. To learn more about the book, visit http://vancouverislandimagine.ca/.

Entering this contest constitutes permission to publish the photos submitted, with your photo credit.
