The finalists of our 2016 member photo contest have now been announced.

We had many, many excellent submissions to choose from, but we’re leaving the selection of the final winner up to you.

Please vote below for your favorite photo, by simply selecting the button for your top pick. We are withholding the names of the photographers until all the votes have been tallied.

Voting ends Oct. 31, and the photo with the most votes on Nov. 1 will win a free booth at the 2017 Manitoba Outdoors Show.

A second free booth will be drawn from among all the members who submitted entries.

Please note voting is now closed, and we are tabulating the results. The winner will be announced soon.
