Vancouver, B.C. – The BC Council of Forest Industries (COFI) today announced the winners of the 3rd Annual Photo Contest conducted in partnership with Canadian Forest Industries (CFI) Magazine.

“This year, we received outstanding submissions from photographers across British Columbia,” said Susan Yurkovich, President and CEO of the BC Council of Forest Industries. “We were thrilled to see so many photographers share images of what forestry means for them and where forest products appear in their everyday lives.”

From October to December 2018, COFI and CFI accepted photo entries that capture the many ways that British Columbians interact with forest products.

Of the 54 submissions received, ten terrific photos have been selected to appear in print, in the January-February edition of CFI Magazine, with the top photo featured on the cover of CFI Magazine.

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