Artists can submit their work until August 31st (Comox Valley Airport)
A record number of people used the Comox Valley Airport last year.
CEO Fred Bigelow says more than 351,000 passengers flew through YQQ in 2015, up 10% from the previous year.
Bigelow says schedule improvements and increased capacity from new WestJet and Air Canada Jazz flights have helped in increasing those passenger numbers.
He says the airport is continuing to look to add services to attract more passengers, including more options in non-stop flights.
Bigelow notes that passenger numbers have increased 90% since 2004 – which was when the new terminal building was opened at the airport.
