Final judging for both Western Photo Gallery and Western Photo Competition has been completed and this year’s show includes many amazing images.

Our gallery is located in Halls D&E of the BMO Centre and will showcase a total of 81 framed/mounted photographs and canvases depicting western heritage & lifestyles. All Gallery images will be available for purchase throughout the 10 days of Stampede, but we encourage everyone to come early as some are sure to sell out.

We will also have a number of contributing photographers on hand as part of ‘Photographer’s Corner’ where you can get unique insights & stories about the photographs on display, or participate in one-on-one discussions about the variety of photographic & framing techniques being used today.

For a sneak peak of the 2011 Western Photo Gallery or to get more information, please log on to our website.  

We are also happy to once again have the Western Photo Competition in this years show. Competition images are not for sale but will be available for viewing via monitor display and is a must see for anyone who appreciates the technical aspects of photography. We encourage everyone to stop by, have a seat, and enjoy the show. There will be 235 images shown in 4 categories, and will take about 20 minutes to complete one loop. Entries were judged based on technical merit and adherence to category criteria and we would like to congratulate the winners:

  •  Best Overall – Ms. Marti Rhea & Guest
  • First Nations – Mr. Stewart McLeish
  • Rodeo – Miss Billy-Jean Duff
  • Western Landscapes – Mr. Hiroaki Kobayashi
