British Columbia, Canada, is a magnificent place to live. It is a rare gem that offers something for everyone. The talent pool is deep and in it you will discover many skilled, artistic, and beautiful interpretations of this province and its people.
If you are a current or past resident of British Columbia, or enjoy traveling in this province, then this is the group for you!
Your best photographs, paintings, drawings, and t-shirts are all welcome submissions provided that they tastefully reflect the beauty, the culture, the wildlife, and the artistic expression of British Columbians.
Send your strongest images that go deeper than the fact that it was taken in BC. Your submissions may reflect the many outdoor activities of BC, such as skiing, snow boarding, sailing, hiking, dancing, flying, paragliding, fishing, water skiing, scuba diving, swimming, dog sledding, horseback riding, sports, or they may simply reflect on the peaceful walks along the river, bird watching, our wildlife, charity work, the music scene, the artistic community, our multi-culturalism, and of course the buzz of our well known “Hollywood North” reputation. From big cities to unorganized communities, from the Pacific Ocean to the Canadian Rockies… let’s show the world the colors of our gem!
