Take Your Best Shot- Our Second Annual Winter Photo Contest has Launched!

Your winter photos could be featured in our calendar, holiday card and other marketing materials! Richardson launched the second Take Your Best Shot Winter Photo Contest on January 1, and we want to see your great photos highlighting our beautiful western Canadian winters!

We’re looking for the best winter shots that showcase Canadian agriculture and highlight Richardson. We want photos that feature our locations and the agriculture industry (i.e. landscapes, winter-specific conditions like storms or frost, transportation, etc.). The winning shots will be featured in marketing materials, on our website, on Richardson’s social media channels and in the 2019 Richardson calendar. Other submissions may also be featured on Richardson’s social media channels.

How to Enter

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

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


Your great winter shots could win you these prizes!

Grand Prize: Bluetooth headphones
Second Place: $100 Tim Hortons gift card and Richardson travel mug
Third Place: Richardson duffel bag

Judges, including professional photographers, will select photos based on creativity, composition, resolution and how the image captures the spirit of winter, agriculture and our business.

Eligibility and Photo Resolution

Please note: Any entrants seeking to win any of the prizes listed above must submit a photo of a high enough resolution to be featured in our calendar.
