Awards Showcase: SWNA Best Wildlife Photo

The Saskatchewan Weekly Newspapers Association (SWNA) Better Newspapers Competition honours excellent work in SK’s community newspapers. Congratulations to the SWNA 2022 BNC winners of the Best Wildlife Photo category!1st Place: Warman Clarks’ Crossing Gazette, Wayne Shiels“Wayne Shiels’ blue jay was a favourite. The high shutter speed captured the beauty of this bird’s tailfeathers in flight. A great capture and I loved the placement on the front page. It made a big, bold statement for this saucy fellow.”2nd Place: Davidson Leader, Sandy Hutchinson“Sandy Hutchinson’s photo of a rare bird had my vote as a top pick. Right place, right time, and this neat photo captured the essence of a cool marsh bird. Nicely done.”3rd Place: The Outlook @sasktoday, Derek Ruttle – Ready for my closeup, sir“Derek Ruttle’s image made me smile. I enjoyed his colourful commentary as to how he caught this inquisitive creature. Great patience, and a super shot.”#BNCAwards recognize the outstanding work produced each week and celebrate the vibrancy of community newspapers across Canada. The SWNA Better Newspapers Competition winners were announced in an online awards presentation on May 13, 2022.
