For the love of family (and of statutory holidays), we teamed up with Tofino Vacation Rentals and Marnie Recker Photography for the Focus on Family Photo Contest to celebrate BC’s first ever Family Day on February 11.

Tofino is a special place, but not only because we (lovingly) say so.  We hear it through your personal accounts of annual family trips, first loves, first wetsuits, fishing conquests, and the best conquests of all, engagements, weddings, honeymoons, babymoons… and honouring loved ones who once enjoyed leaving their footprints on our sandy beaches.  We also see your stories in the images and videos you’ve shared with us and the world.  Indeed, Tofino holds a place in the hearts of many, and in these days of wearing our heart on our mobile device or screen, it’s high time for our Focus on Family Photo Contest.

Here’s how it works:  Post your family photo taken in Tofino, share it (asking for votes is completely ok!) and the photo with the most votes wins a two-night spring getaway in a custom vacation home minutes from Chesterman Beach and a family photo portrait session with Tofino photographer Marnie Recker.  If you’re not feeling ready to share your own photo, why not visit the contest page and vote for your favourite?

Here’s to spending more time with family on the beach, by the fireplace, on the water, or any way you wish in Tofino.  Our team wishes you happy BC Family Day travel planning (and photo posting, and voting!)
