Forestry photo contest winners announced
By Susan Yurkovich
Oct. 20, 2017 - The BC Council of Forest Industries, in partnership with Canadian Forest Industries, launched the second annual Forestry Community Photo Contest in June to highlight the forest industry of today.
Our goal was to showcase the significance of the forest industry to the people and communities throughout B.C. We were pleased to receive some fantastic photos that illustrate how people live, work and play in B.C.’s beautiful forests and forest dependent communities.
We would like to congratulate the top 10 winners whose photos are published in this print edition of CFI magazine as well as in CFI’s online edition. Andrew Vincent is the grand prize winner and will receive an Canon Rebel T6 with 18-55mm DC III Lens. Michael Davis, Eric Carriere, and Rahul Ravin are winners in the three categories of Work, Live and Play. Each of these winners will receive a basket of summer essentials to help them get outside and enjoy all that B.C. has to offer.
We would like to thank all participants who provided us with a snapshot of the role of the forest industry in your life. We would also like to thanks our partners Canadian Forest Industries for their generous support of this contest, as well as their continued support and coverage of the forest industry in B.C.
Susan Yurkovich is President & CEO of COFI and President of the BC Lumber Trade Council.
