As of 4:00 pm October 15 judging in the 2021 Photo Contest is complete. We will be announcing the winners next week once we have had a chance to tally the votes. We will publish the winning photos in our Photo Gallery in the County website and on the Saddle Hills County Photo Contest page.

Thank you to all who participated. We are always pleased by the quality of the submissions we receive. Thank you also to all of our new followers on Instagram who appreciated and voted for their favourites.


We were once again blown away by the quality of the submissions we received in last year’s photo contest and we’re happy to announce the 2021 contest.

This year we’ve trimmed the number of categories down but we are still offering prizes in both the adult and youth classes. You need to be a resident of the County to participate but we welcome voters from anywhere to judge.

We will be posting all submissions on our Saddle Hills County Photo Contest Facebook page and this year we will also be posting entries on the County’s dedicated Photo Contest Instagram page.

Don't Forget - you must sign and submit a waiver for your submission(s) to be considered. You'll find the link at the bottom of this page.
