BC Council for Families Announces Online Family Photo Competition

I Love My Family Competition Celebrates National Family Week, October 5-11, 2009.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2009) - No one knows how to have fun like your family! Now, you could even win a prize for it.

This fall, to celebrate Canada's National Family Week, October 5 - 11, 2009, the BC Council for Families is inviting families to show off their fun side with the I Love My Family Online Photo Competition. The Council will be giving away great prizes for the best photos of family fun. To enter, all you need is a photo of your family and a 100-word story telling us what fun means in your family.

"We want to celebrate the incredible diversity of families in BC. Every family is different, but every family is built on love," said Glenn Hope, Executive Director of the BC Council for Families. "This contest is a chance for everyone to share what makes their family unique and wonderful. Families are all about caring for one another, spending time together, and having fun. We're looking forward to some terrific photos and stories of family fun!"

Each day during National Family Week, one winning photo will be chosen by the BC Council for Families as a great example of why We Love Families. The grand-prize winner will be announced in November. The deadline to enter is October 16, 2009. For complete details, visit www.bccf.bc.ca. Join us on Facebook to enter your family fun photos today.

"This is a great time to encourage everyone in BC to enjoy the simple things in life," said Hope. "Having fun with family can be as simple as sharing a joke or taking a walk. That's what makes it so wonderful."
