Photo Contest 2019

We are pleased to announce the 2019 'Let's Be County Proud' photo contest.

We've learned over the years that we benefit from a large number of skilled photographers in Saddle Hills County and we are once again holding a photo contest to showcase their work.

As always, we want as many photos of people as possible since we use the submitted photos in our online promotion for the County through the County's website and social media accounts.


We've changed the categories up a bit from last year but stayed true to the general themes we've established which focus on the people, geography and beauty of our County and our way of life

  • Our changing Seasons
  • Community Pride
  • Pets, animals, farm animals
  • Generations—people and places
  • Sporting events
  • Black and white

 As we did last year we will be awarding prizes for both Adult (18 and older) and Youth (17 and younger)
