Invasive Species Action Month Photo Contest 2016 Winners

We Have Winners!

Invasive Species Action Month Photo Contest

Many thanks to all those who entered in the Invasive Species Council of BC’s first Invasive Species Action Month Photo Contest, held during Invasive Species Action Month, May 2016. Winners were selected by a panel of judges from the ISCBC’s Communications Committee. The judges had a real challenge in choosing winners, as there were many excellent submissions.

Two winners were selected and each was presented with a Go Pro camera! Several photos were also selected for honorable mention – see below. Congratulations!

Keep the Photos Coming!

To all keen photographers out and about in BC this season - Keep taking photographs and send them in! We’d love to see your photos of invasive species in BC, people taking action on invasive plants or animals, dealing with invasive species on the job or carrying out best practices to ensure they don’t spread. Send them to us by email at or through Twitter or Instagram HASHTAG  #bcinvasivescontest  - we’ll post them online!
