BCI continues to evolve and reflect the work of the current group of volunteers  that govern BCI as they connect and interact with bonsai and stone lovers around the world. Their collective knowledge and experiences enable them to transcend geographic diversity and cultures to promote and present the best that bonsai and viewing stone appreciation has to offer. This issue is a reflection of the progress that BCI has made and the substantial work by volunteer directors and members to help us all appreciate bonsai and viewing stones everywhere.
 
Entries to the Best of BCI 2015 Photo Competition are now closed. We received 86 entries for stones and 207 for trees. The entries have been processed and are being adjudicated. The images were given new file names and the entry information was edited to remove the participant’s name to help make the judging process impartial. Good luck to all those who entered. We will release a list of finalists soon.
