ExploreSask Photo Contest

Tourism Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the winning submissions in the 2016 ExploreSask Photo Contest. The competition, launched in June, received almost 3,000 entries by the September 15 submission deadline.

A winning photo was selected in each of the six categories, along with additional photographs that merited honourable mention. This year’s submissions challenged the judges with their impressive quality. The winning photographs capture the essence of Saskatchewan – its extraordinary natural beauty, impressive landscapes, unique travel experiences, exciting urban life and the remarkable spirit of its people.
