Biodiversity Research Photo Competition

The Biodiversity Research Photo Competition showcases the diversity of research and researchers at UBC’s Biodiversity Research Centre. These images communicate the excitement of biodiversity research and the captivating nature of its subjects, in a visual celebration of innovation and creativity. They tell the story of our strange and wonderful natural world, and those who study it.

Images should be captured by someone affiliated with the BRC and showcase the subject or process of BRC research, whether at home, in the lab, or in the field. A selection of submissions will be displayed online on a dedicated website.


  • Winner receives $500 and a framed copy of their photograph.
  • Honourable mention receives $250 and framed copy of their photograph.
  • People’s choice receives $250 and framed copy of their photograph.
  • All three finalist images will be publicly displayed in the Museum.
