Vancouver, B.C. – The BC Council of Forest Industries (COFI) and Canadian Forest Industries (CFI) Magazine have announced the winners of the fifth annual Forestry Photo Contest.

“The forest industry has strong roots across B.C. and the photos we receive every year reflect that,” said Susan Yurkovich, President and CEO, COFI. “As always, the photographs show the diversity and beauty of our forests and forest products. Thank you to all the entrants and congratulations to the prize recipients.”

From October to December 2020, participants from across British Columbia submitted photos that show the many ways forests and forest products are present in our everyday lives.

Of the 41 submissions received, 10 photos have been selected to appear in print, in the January – February edition of CFI magazine.

The top photo winner will also receive a $500 gift card to Canadian Tire, and three other winning photographers will receive a $100 Canadian Tire gift card and have their photos featured in the magazine.
