A Day in the Life of Port Alberni

See what it takes to pull together our photographic feature, and join in the fun July 12

The Alberni Valley News has been photographing its annual Day in the Life of Port Alberni souvenir section for more than 10 years. In 2017, videographer Andrew Nixon shadowed News editor Susie Quinn as she went around the community taking photos of people going about their everyday lives.

Today—July 12, 2018 —photographers representing the AV News are out in the community again, shooting photos for the 2018 souvenir edition, which will come out on Aug. 22 with our print edition. Take a look back at what it takes to put this popular feature together, and why we are passionate about doing it.

We also have a contest on the go for 2018: we’re asking people in Port Alberni to take photos anytime during this one day, and submit them to editor@albernivalleynews.com. We need to know the exact time you took the photo, your name and contact info (we won’t print the contact info), names of people in the photo, where you were when you snapped it and what people were doing.

Are you from Port Alberni but living or working somewhere else? Take a photo anyway and share it with us! We’d love to know what Port Albernians are doing outside of our city borders.
