STA Photo Contest

Give Us Your Best Shot Photo Contest

The Saskatchewan Trails Association will be running a month-long Give Us Your Best Shot photo contest in June.  The photo contest begins on Saturday, June 6 — Saskatchewan Trails Day – and concludes on Tuesday, June 30.  Prizes will be presented to the top photo. To enter our contest, post a picture of your favourite trail in Saskatchewan on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, using #SaskTrailsPhotoContest or email us at

Entry Procedure:

The contest is available for all residents of Saskatchewan.  STA board and staff may submit their pictures, but are not eligible to win the contest. While photos may be submitted multiple times using Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or email, there is only one entry per unique photo.  You may enter as many photos as you wish to the contest.

To enter the STA Give Us Your Best Shot photo contest, you must submit your photos by posting on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #SaskTrailsPhotoContest or email them to us. We must be able to see your picture in order to be entered in the contest, so be sure to check your privacy settings.  Posts must be made public to be counted as an entry. When posting, if possible, format the photo in the highest resolution possible to ensure we are able to use it in printed materials. The winning photo may be used to promote trails in Saskatchewan through brochures, annual reports, social media and more.


The winner will be chosen at the end of the month, announced on our pages, and will be contacted to arrange and claim their prize. Pictures will only be accepted into the contest until June 30th, so be sure to get your pictures in before then.  The top photo winner will receive a $200 gift certificate to Cabela’s. As pictures come in they may be featured on our page, with credit to the photographer. Best wishes to all who enter, we can’t wait to see your adventures!

    Why do you require ALL the ownership of the photo, instead of allowing photographers to own the rights and give you unlimited use …. photographers Be careful when you enter contests like this ….Always read the rules …”What does it mean to waive moral rights?
    A specimen form of waiver by which the author or photographer waives his rights to be identified as the author or photographer of the work in question and/or his right to object to treatment of the work”.
