COFI Launches Photo Contest

Sunday, October 9, 2016 @ 10:08 AM

Prince George, B.C. – The Council of Forest Industries had joined forces with London Drugs  and launched a photo contest that highlights the  forest industry.

“Those of us who work in the forest sector understand the innovation, diversity, commitment to sustainability, and sense of community that this industry has to offer,” said Susan Yurkovich, President and CEO of the Council of Forest Industries.  “With this community photo contest, we would like to provide all British Columbians an opportunity to capture the images that reflect the industry of today – the diversity, the innovation, the people and the communities that make it great.”

Now through  to December 9, 2017, COFI and CFI magazine will accept photo entries that capture the essence of the forest industry in BC through the lenses of the people who live, work and play here.

There are four themes for entries:

  • Innovation: bring us images that capture the modern forest industry in action – technology and machinery, research and development, and the finished wood products that bring warmth and beauty to our everyday lives.
  • People: show us the diverse face of today’s forest industry – the people who work to make this industry great, whether in the mills, in the bush, in trucks, machinery, consoles and at the lab benches and computers.
  • Community: take us on a tour through your town, your neighbourhood, your coffee shop, your parks and playgrounds, trails and waterways, and show the world the places you call home.
  • Environment: frame the natural world around you – the B.C. forest industry is the most sustainable in the world; show us the beauty of the world in which you live, work and play, and the interconnectedness with the flora, fauna and people who inhabit it.

The grand prize winner will be featured on the cover of CFI magazine, and will receive an Olympus TG-870 all-weather camera courtesy of London Drugs. Photos from each thematic area will also be selected to have their photos published in CFI magazine. Winners in each category will receive a 12×12 coffee table photo book and a $100 gift card to London Drugs.

“I want to thank Canadian Forest Industries Magazine and London Drugs for their generous support of this contest,” said Yurkovich. “They continue to show their strong support for communities throughout the province of British Columbia.”
