It’s Time to Get Creative! Geoscience BC’s Annual Picture Competition is Open!
Vancouver, BC – March 31, 2020 – Geoscience BC has launched its annual picture competition today in an effort to collect as many great visual geoscience stories over the upcoming months as possible.
Anyone who has worked on a Geoscience BC project is eligible for this contest, including principal investigators, students (including scholarship winners) and assistants.
Pictures from the field, the lab, under the microscope and renders can all portray great geoscience stories. They don’t need to be from 2020, but we ask you not to send pictures that have been submitted before.
As in previous years, there will be prizes in three categories - one each for our Minerals, Energy and Water strategic focus areas. The pictures will be published in our Annual Report and Summary of Activity volumes, as well as other promotional materials and the Geoscience BC website.
Geoscience BC staff will award up to three (3) prizes of $200 for the pictures that depict the best Minerals, Energy and Water research stories. Images must be a minimum of 1,200 pixels on the shortest axis to be eligible (details below).
Please review the picture release form and submit with your pictures to Candice Appleby (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday, October 5th. Winners will be notified by email by December 15, 2020.
