Picture BC Shifting to Provincial Flickr Site

An online database that provides free photos of BC communities is moving to a new home.  At its recent meeting, UBCM Executive decided to close Picture BC and transfer its photos to the Province of BC.  The photos will continue to be made available to the public free of charge through the Province‚Äôs Flickr account.  

Picture BC, launched in 2009, provides high-resolution images chosen by 150 communities for personal and commercial uses.  The website also allows communities to customize their own community page and upload locally produced tourism marketing materials. 

The closure of the website will take place later this summer.  Following closure, visitors to Picture BC will be redirected to the hosting site maintained by the provincial government.   

Local governments who have any questions about the upcoming transfer and closure of Picture BC may contact Paul Taylor, Director of Communications for UBCM.
