Ontario Pork wants members in the province to participate in their “Ontario Pork Proud” campaign, which is scheduled to launch this fall.

The organization encourages farmers to participate by entering photos into a contest.

The competition, which is open until August 11 at 5 p.m., consists of three categories:

  • People
  • Places
  • Animals

Each farm family may participate in as many categories as they would like but may enter no more than three photos per category.

To add incentive, Ontario Pork will award the following prizes:

  • First place will receive $150
  • Second place will receive $100
  • Third place will receive $50
  •  A top prize of $200 for each of the four zones

Stacey Ash, manager of communications and consumer marketing at Ontario Pork, wants this campaign to be seen as an opportunity to celebrate the province’s pork producers.

“There’s a lot of misinformation out there about farming,” said Ash. “We know that Ontario pork producers care deeply about their animals, the environment and the people around them. They have a lot to be proud of.”

The photos will be used to share stories in advertising, educational materials and social media.

“Our message is simple: No one knows your farm, your family or your animals as well as you do. Help us show the world the best of hog farming in Ontario.”

Further details are available on the Ontario Pork website.
