Describe your creative piece – what is it and what has it been used for, and why is it innovative?
The Burns Bog Conservation Society is a charity organization committed to the protection of one of the world's most unique ecosystems - the Burns Bog of Delta, BC. Bogs play a critical role in the reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions and are a habitat for hundreds of wildlife and plant species. The Burns Bog Gala is an exciting evening event benefiting the Burns Bog Conservation Society. The Gala features guest speaker Ray Zahab, a world-renowned ultramarathoner, environmental activist and humanitarian. This poster was designed using Adobe Photoshop and captivates the natural beauty of the Bog, while translating the elegance of the event.
What issue or problem were you working to address with this piece?
Non-profit organizations rely heavily on public attention and interest. Although the Burns Bog Conservation Society has been preaching environmental conservation for more than 20 years, we would like to reach out and find more supporters. Currently, the construction of the South Fraser Perimeter Road threatens the livelihood and preservation of the Bog. The Bog is also threatened by a landfill at the south of its area. The protection and conservation of the environment requires a global effort, and the Gala is an excellent way to reach out and gather support. It's also an entertaining, exquisite and exciting event for people of all ages!
How has your submission successfully impacted your organization’s ability to solve this issue/problem?
The photograph of the bog, with its beauty enhanced using Adobe Photoshop, has certainly turned heads and caught attention. Combining formal elegance with natural beauty, this poster informs and excites. This poster has earned the attention of the community, and caused much anticipation for the Gala!
