BC Gem Show People's Choice Awards

Every year the BC Gem Show's 5,000+ guests have the opportunity to vote for the display case they like best. Votes are added up on the Sunday of the show and the winner announced. In 2017 we added a separate People's Choice Award for the best case assembled entirely by a junior member.

All members of BCLS chartered clubs have the opportunity to display their finds or creations at the BC Gem Show and are encouraged to do so. What we showcase to the public helps generate interest in the offerings of the BCLS and your club. Please talk to your club's respective executive if you wish to host a display at the BC Gem Show.
