Vancouver, BC – The BC Council of Forest Industries (COFI) and partner Canadian Forest Industries (CFI) Magazine, are pleased to announce the sixth annual forestry photo contest is now open for submissions.

This year’s photo contest calls for submissions that illustrate the sector’s deep commitment to sustainability and being part of the climate change solution.

“The forest industry has been foundational to BC’s economy for generations and supports 100,000 good jobs in communities big and small all across British Columbia. From tree planters and forest technologists in Prince George, to drone makers and environmental consultants in Vancouver, all play an important role in ensuring we have a strong, sustainable forest sector here in BC for decades to come. With increasing global demand for low-carbon products from sustainably managed forests, we are excited to celebrate those who are driving innovation in the industry and are passionate about keeping BC’s forests healthy and producing products that are good for the planet. Best of luck to all the entrants.” says Susan Yurkovich, President and CEO, COFI.

Photo entries will be accepted from November 22, 2021 to January 7, 2022.

The grand prize winner of the contest will have their photo featured on the cover of CFI’s January/February 2022 issue and receive a $500 Home Depot gift card. Three runners up will each receive a $75 Home Depot gift card, and see their photos published in CFI, along with other various selected photos.
