There are some pretty big things happening at the COABC right now, including a brand new website! We’re busy putting together a fresh, collaborative space that will engage BC’s organic sector on all levels, from producer to consumer, and will provide better support through improved tools, information and resources.

And that’s where you come in: Somehow, in between all of your planning, planting, harvesting, marketing and selling, you’ve managed to share some amazing photos. Trust us—we’ve noticed. Your photos are authentic, one-of-a-kind and tell the real story of BC organic. And that’s why we want to feature your images on our website (with credit, of course)!


  • Grand prize: Your image will be featured front and centre on our new homepage
  • Second and third prize: Your image will be featured in another prominent location on our new website

How to enter:

Dig through your archives, or take a new photo of BC organic in action. We want to see it all: the fields, the faces, the sowing, the growing, the grazing, the processing, the selling and of course the eating! Just remember, all photos must be of organic operations that are either certified or transitional under the COABC umbrella.

  • Share your photos on Instagram, Facebook and/or Twitter with the hashtag #OrganicBC
  • Make sure your Facebook posts are public so we can see your photos!
  • Don’t use social media? Email your photos to Stacey at communications@certifiedorganic.bc.ca
  • Feel free to tell the story behind the photos to bring them to life!
  • That’s it! You’re entered to win.

All non-winning entries may also be used on our website in various locations—we’ll be in touch! All photos, winning or not, will include photo credits.

Contest duration

The contest opens first thing on Monday, Sept. 7th and runs until Monday, Oct. 12th at midnight (PDT)!
