2021 ExploreSask Photo Contest

Tourism Saskatchewan is excited to announce the winning submissions for the 2021 ExploreSask Photo Contest. The competition, launched in June, received over 6,800 entries by the September 15 deadline.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way people travel and participate in activities, the number and variety of photographs submitted to the contest this year was impressive. The images highlight the many opportunities available for residents to enjoy the outdoors and discover new experiences in the province.

One winning photo, together with a selection of honourable mentions, were chosen for each of the six categories. The stunning photographs capture the province’s natural beauty and dynamic spirit – featuring extraordinary landscapes, diverse experiences, magnificent wildlife and the unique character of Saskatchewan people.

We would like to thank everyone for participating.
