Town Announces 2021 Fall Photo Contest Winners
by Town of High River
HIGH RIVER –Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2021 Fall Photo Contest. The Town is pleased to announce the winners in each category. The support shown by our community was outstanding. The quality of the photo submissions showcase the natural beauty of High River.
The overall winner of the Fall Photo Contest is Bernie Kolton, from the 16 and Over Category. Their landscape photo of Sunshine Lake is colourful and clear and represents the beauty and atmosphere of High River.
The judging panel was comprised of a cross section of Town staff, joined by Councillor Jenny Jones, and Councillor Brenda Walsh. The submissions were judged blindly using an anonymous ranking system. Given the quality of the photos, judging was extremely close, and we’d like to congratulate everyone for their photography talents.
The winners of the 2021 Fall Photo Contest are listed below. Each winner receives an 11X14 framed copy of their photo, gift baskets full of local delights and gift cards and of course, bragging rights!
