Dozens of photographers entered over 195 photos in the 30th annual Sinks Canyon Photo Contest. Local people won ribbons and cash prizes for spectacular pictures of flowers, wildlife and scenery. A 30th anniversary Best of Show prize of $300.00 was awarded to Lander photographer Stan Harter for his shot of a Sinks Canyon Bighorn ram. The number of pictures entered was a new record said park officials.

The winning photos will be on display through Labor Day at the Sinks Canyon Visitor Center. The winning pictures are on display panels, but visitors can see ALL of the photographs entered this year on the park’s new 42 inch flat screen T.V. “This gives people a chance to view all of the great shots we get,” said Park Superintendent Darrel Trembly. “Many of the pictures that didn’t place could have easily won ribbons if we had them to give out!”

People coming to see the contest winners can vote for their favorite picture which will be given a People’s Choice ribbon on Labor Day.

Best In Show





“What a spectacular year for wildlife and flower shots,” said Park Superintendent Darrel Trembly. “People clearly are working hard to get these beautiful pictures and they really care about this area.”

The winning photos will be on display at the visitor center through Labor Day, along with all the entries. After that the winners will be on display at Westward Heights Care Center through September. Some of the photos will be chosen as part of the permanent collection at Westward Heights. For more information call 307-332-3077.
