2016/2017 Project Highlights: Call for Submissions

New Schedule; New Deadline

Innovation magazine invites members to submit project photos for the 2016/2017 Project Highlights showcase, to be published in May/June 2017. This annual pictorial features the diverse activities of BC’s professional engineers and geoscientists at home and abroad. (View the 2015/2016 Project Highlights.)

Members, licensees, and companies are invited to submit photographs of engineering or geoscience projects undertaken during 2016 and early 2017, within or outside BC, employing APEGBC members or licensees. Photographs must be high-resolution digital image files, and must be accompanied by project descriptions of no more than 150 words, identifying the owners and professional or licensed members involved. Members are strongly encouraged to describe the innovative or sustainability aspects of their particular project.

The deadline to submit project photos for publication is January 20, 2017. Late submissions will not be considered.

Before submitting your project for consideration, view the submission requirements, including specifications for digital images. 

In selecting project submissions for the pictorial, the APEGBC Editorial Board considers the following selection criteria: 
  • Projects that reflect the diversity of the work performed by members;
  • Representation from a wide variety of employers of APEGBC members;
  • Sustainability and innovative features of the project; and
  • Quality and visual appeal of the image, whether the image directly reflects the engineering or geoscience contributions described in the accompanying caption, and whether the image includes human interest.
