Entomological Society of Canada Photo Contest
Each year, the Entomological Society of Canada (ESC) holds a photograph contest, to determine the insect, or insect-related pictures that will grace the covers of The Canadian Entomologist (6 issues) and the Bulletin of the Entomological Society of Canada (4 issues) in the following year.  The 2019 contest, for the 2020 covers is now open (closing date is 31 August 2019).

We’d love to have some entries from AES members, and this is a great opportunity to have your photos seen by a wider audience.  Note that you have to be a member of the ESC for your entry to be considered. Details of the contest are in the attached document, and can also be found on p. 64 of the March 2019 ESC Bulletin, which is available from  With a closing date of August 31, 2019, you have several months to take photos if you don’t have them already.
