The British Pest Control Association (BPCA) is on a mission to find the best pest photograph of the year and is calling all industry professionals to join in. There is a cash prize of £500 for the winner.
A cash prize of £500 will be presented to the individual who captures the perfect image of public health pest control, chosen by a panel of leading experts and members of the BPCA team.
Hosted on the association’s social media channels, the aim of the competition is to raise awareness of the significance of the sector and put a spotlight on the people within it.
Ian Andrew, chief executive of BPCA, said: “Pest professionals do an amazing job protecting people from disease and distress. We wanted to highlight the important work the pest sector does to protect the nation. Our ‘Best Pest Pic’ photo of the year competition will help celebrate and draw attention to our work.”
The photograph – which must be taken in the UK – can be of any public health pest or a pest management professional in action, helping to protect people from infestations.
