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 in a research or conservation environment – be it fieldwork, lab or bioblitz – and showcase the subject or process of BRC research.

The Beaty Photo Contest is Now CLOSED.

We are not accepting any more submissions.


  • Winner receives $500 and a framed copy of their photograph.
  • Honourable mentions (x2) receive $250 and framed copy of their photograph.
  • All three finalist images will be publicly displayed in the Museum during fall 2019.




The submission deadline is August 14, 2019 with winners announced in September, 2019.
