VOTE: Nature in Focus reader’s choice photo contest

The Penticton Western News, in partnership with the South Okanagan Naturalists’ Club, is holding a Reader’s Choice Awards as part of the Nature in Focus 2018 photo contest.

The South Okanagan Naturalists’ Club received around 600 entries of photos from around the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen into their contest with the winning photos from each of the six categories now on display at the Penticton Museum and Archives.

The Western News is looking for input on which photos should be awarded prizes (first, second, third) for the Reader’s Choice Awards.

Email us at editor@pentictonwesternnews.com with the subject Reader’s Choice and in the body of the email indicate your choice of first, second and third by including the photographers name.

Voting will end at 5 p.m. on Oct. 23 with the winning photos presented in the Oct. 26 Penticton Western News.
