CMTN holds fall photo contest and gallery

Oct 08, 2021

Calling all photographers and creatives!

Coast Mountain College is holding a fall photo contest this month asking CMTN students to take their best fall campus photo using only their phone camera and post it on social media (Facebook and Instagram) using the hashtag #CMTNBeautiFALL.

We are searching for the best 10 photos to be displayed in our Terrace campus gallery in the Cedar Building from October 25 to October 28.

Post by Oct. 19 to be entered into the contest.

Students and staff will then be able to vote for their favourite image by ballot at the gallery.

The top winner will be announced on Oct. 29 and win a $50 CMTN gift card!

Please note that if you are selected as a top 10 contestant, we will request for you to send the image via email in its highest resolution so we can print it properly. Images will then be professional framed and publicly displayed. 

If you have any questions, contact student engagement officer Anjo Colago at
