2022 ExploreSask Photo Contest

Tourism Saskatchewan is excited to announce the winning submissions for the 2022 ExploreSask Photo Contest. The competition, launched in June, received over 4,100 entries by the September 15 deadline. 

Changes to the contest this year included two new image categories (Food & Drink and Winter), along with a new category for video submissions.

The winning entries and honourable mentions, selected by an external panel of judges, capture the province's natural beauty and dynamic spirit. The images feature extraordinary landscapes, winter scenery, diverse experiences, magnificant wildlife and the unique character of Saskatchewan people.

We would like to thank everyone for participating.
