Invasive Species Council of British Columbia

Volunteer Face Mask Design Challenge

ISCBC challenged volunteers to use their artistic skills in the Volunteer Face Mask Design Challenge, whether digital, photography, painting or any other medium, to create an invasive species inspired design. The designs were focused on invasive species, the preservation of biodiversity and represent ISCBC’s Vision “Healthy landscapes and communities free of invasive species”. The winning design was used to create a branded face mask, distributed to the ISCBC volunteers, the ISCBC team and board members.  

Volunteers voted on the designs and the ‘Volunteer’s Choice” winner was announced on August 19, 2021.
