Start Snapping! Geoscience BC's Annual Photo Competition is Now Open!

Vancouver, BC - April 3, 2019 - Geoscience BC has launched its annual photo competition, and is asking everyone working on any Geoscience BC-funded project this summer to share photos that tell a great geoscience research story!

Anyone working on a Geoscience BC-funded project is eligible for this contest, including principal investigators, students (including scholarship winners) and field assistants, so please help spread the word to anyone who may have photos to submit.

There will be up to three prizes of $200 – one each for our minerals, energy and water strategic focus areas. The photos will be published in our Annual Report and Summary of Activity publications, as well as other promotional materials. Pictures can be taken anywhere - in the field, in the lab, in the community – as long as it relates to Geoscience BC funded work.

Photos taken in 2019 are preferred but we will accept photos from projects that were taken at any time. Please do not resubmit photos that have been previously submitted.

Send your photos to Candice Appleby ( by Monday, September 30 along with a completed photo release form. We also encourage you to share your photos on social media through the summer, tagging @GeoscienceBC on LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram.

This year’s competition is opening earlier than in previous years so that researchers working in the field over the summer have a chance to prepare ahead of time. Winners will be notified by email by November 30, 2019.
