Take Your Best Shot

We’re looking for your best shots. Richardson launched the third annual “Take Your Best Shot” photo contest on February 1. Richardson Pioneer customers and employees are encouraged to take photos of agriculture throughout the year and enter our contest. 

We’re looking for the best photos that showcase Canadian agriculture and highlight Richardson. We want photos that feature people, our locations and the ag industry (i.e. landscapes, prairie sunsets, transportation, etc). The winning shots will be featured in marketing materials, on our website and in the 2017 Richardson calendar.

First place will receive an iPad, second place a waterproof camera and third place a Richardson travel bag. Judges, including professional photographers and Richardson executives, will select photos based on creativity, composition, and how the image captures the spirit of agriculture and our business.

How to Enter

Submit your photos to: photo@richardson.ca and include:

  • Photographer’s name and location
  • Telephone number
  • Description of the photo and where it was taken
  • Twitter and Instagram handles, if applicable

Photo Requirements

Photos need to be high resolution and of a high enough quality to be printed in a calendar. Quality and resolution are factors in making our winning selections.

Photos should be 300 dpi and no smaller than 8” x 10” and four megabytes. If photo submissions are 72 dpi, they must be at least 3,000 pixels in size both vertically and horizontally. Photos taken on a cell phone are not high enough quality. You can check the quality of your photos by right clicking on the file on your computer, selecting “Properties” and clicking on the details tab. Low quality photos will not be eligible to win the grand prizes.

Richardson’s deadline for submission is 11:59 p.m. on September 16, 2016. Winners will be announced in mid-November. See full contest details and rules here.

Good luck and remember to take your best shot!
