How we chose this issue’s cover
One way or another, cave diver Jill Heinerth was destined to win the cover vote for this issue. After all, as one of Canada’s top women explorers, she was a natural choice. In an atypical approach for this issue’s survey, we presented voters with just two options, both variations of an underwater portrait of Heinerth. While there are many great images of the diver in her element, these two in particular stood out. It was a close tally, but option two, the wider shot of Heinerth near her home in High Springs, Florida, won with 53 per cent. Voters generally commented that they preferred seeing more of the underwater environment and diving equipment, which gave a greater sense of what Heinerth does. Who are we to argue?
