Three packages are on offer and the contest will run until the morning of December 15. Winners will be randomly selected.

Entries can be submitted on the Use the #exploreprincegeorge hashtag for your entry and to be featured on Tourism Prince George's social media channels.

The contest follows on the launch of a new brand and website by Tourism Prince George last week.

"To further celebrate the launch of our new destination brand, we thought it was a great time to showcase Prince George as 'the Basecamp to the North' while supporting our tourism industry partners," said Tourism Prince George CEO Tracey McBride.

"We are promoting staycations to our locals, as they are truly our destination ambassadors who can encourage their friends and family to visit Prince George. It's an opportunity for locals to showcase their favourite spots in the city and for visitors to share their best discoveries."

The webpage is also the spot to see what is on offer and to book a staycation package.
