Project Highlights Pictorial

Submission Specifications

Innovation invites members to submit project photos for 2017/2018 Project Highlights showcase, to be published in the May/June 2018 edition of the magazine. This annual pictorial features the diverse activities of BC’s professional engineers and geoscientists at home and abroad.

Members, licensees, or companies may submit photographs of engineering or geoscience projects in any discipline undertaken or completed during the last 12 months, within or outside BC, employing Engineers and Geoscientists BC members and licensees. Photographs should be high-resolution digital image files. Photos must be accompanied by project descriptions of 100-150 words.

Due to space limitations, Innovation is unable to accommodate all submissions. We encourage members working for large companies to coordinate their project submissions to avoid multiple or duplicate submissions as only one submission per company will be selected, except when space permits.

Deadline

The deadline to submit project photos and accompanying descriptions is March 21, 2018. Late submissions will not be considered.

How to Participate

Send by email:

  • A high-resolution digital photograph of a project undertaken by Engineers and Geoscientists BC members or licensees in the last 12 months
  • A 100–150 word project description that identifies the project name,  owner, and the Engineers and Geoscientists BC members or licensees involved

Photo Specifications

  • Should be submitted in .jpg file format;
  • Must have a minimum image resolution of 300 dpi @5"x6". (Larger is preferred.) 

Please do not embed images within a Word document or submit collage-type or composite images.

Please ensure you have permission/authority to share the photo with Innovation for the purpose of publication. By submitting material to Innovation, you grant to Engineers and Geoscientists BC a royalty-free, worldwide licence to publish the material; and you warrant that you have the authority to grant such rights and have obtained waivers of all associated moral rights.

Project Description Specifications

Photos must be accompanied by a 100–150 word project description that identifies:
  • The project name
  • The project owners

  • Any additional features that set the project apart (i.e., innovative or sustainable aspects of the project) 

Please submit these captions as a separate MS Word or text file together with digital image files by email. (For past examples, view the 2016/2017 Project Highlights edition.)

  • Whether an Engineers and Geoscientists BC professional member or licensee was involved in the project and is clearly identified in the description
  • Projects that have not previously been featured in the Project Highlights Pictorial or in an Innovation feature story, or—where a project entails many diverse contributors over several years—aspects/contributions to the project that have not previously been featured in the magazine.
  • Photos that have not previously appeared in Innovation magazine
  • Project descriptions that tell stories and convey a sense of what working in engineering or geoscience is like on a day-to-day basis
  • Sustainability features
  • Innovative aspects of the project
  • Visual appeal and quality of the photo
  • Whether the photo clearly illustrates the contributions described, and has human interest (photos of members working or people using the featured device/space are encouraged).
