We asked BCLiving readers to show us why life on the West Coast rocks, and they responded with great photos that truly capture why life is better here

The winning photo is "Kits Beach" with 1679 votes, submitted by Kuldip from Vancouver. Here's Kuldip: "Being on the beach in Vancouver, with our gorgeous city in the background and the beautiful mountains fully captures what Vancouver is to me. I travel frequently, but there truly is no place like home."

We are excited to announce that the winner has won a luxurious helicopter round-trip to Victoria, an overnight stay at The Fairmont Empress, and pedicure at Willow Stream Spa courtesy of Helijet.

"#LifeIsBetterHere on Mt. Seymour. It just is. In the winter, you can play in the snow. In the fall, you can play in the mud. In the summer, you can play in the sun. But in the spring... you might get lucky and get it all! Yes. #LifeIsBetterHere." - Simone's photo was runner up with 1,448 votes!
