COFI launches Fifth Annual Photo Contest

Use your camera to illustrate the breadth and diversity of B.C.’s forest industry

The BC Council of Forest Industries (COFI) and media partner Canadian Forest Industries (CFI) Magazine, announced on Nov. 12, 2020, the launch of their fifth annual photo contest calling for submissions that illustrate the breadth and diversity of B.C.’s forest industry across the province.

“Thousands of British Columbians in urban and rural communities across the province work directly in the forest industry and for businesses big and small that provide the industry with important goods and services. British Columbians also use forest products every day in their homes and workplaces and for play. Whether you’re in a big city centre like Vancouver or Surrey, or in a traditional forestry town like Campbell River or Fort St. John, we are excited to see what forestry looks like to you,” says Susan Yurkovich, President and CEO, COFI, “Thank you, Canadian Forest Industries Magazine, for your continued support of forestry communities and for supporting this contest each year.”

COFI and CFI magazine are accepting photo entries from now until Dec. 16, 2020.

One grand prize winner will have their photo featured on the cover of CFI magazine and will receive a $500 Canadian Tire gift card. Three runners up will each receive a $75 Canadian Tire gift card, and various selected photos will also be published in the magazine.

A panel of judges selected by COFI and CFI Magazine will pick 10 photos from all entries received. The team will make its selections considering the following criteria:

1) The meaning of the photo is reasonably apparent to the audience (i.e. it portrays a clear subject with effect/emotion).

2) Technical quality (i.e. clear and clean composition).
