The Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) is pleased to announce the winners of its 50th Anniversary Photo Contest. 

The TNRD received more than 200 photos of nature and scenery from amateur photographers during the two-month photo contest period. Judging for the winners was done by a combination of public likes from the TNRD 50th Instagram site where submissions were displayed ( and TNRD elected officials.

The following photos were selected as the prize winners:


1st Place K. Bentz Trees at McQueen Lake (PC0108)
2nd Place K. Breen Sunrise at Tobiano (PC0148)
3rd Place C. Shearer Chipmunk in Merritt (PC0206)


1st Place B. Pryce Wildflowers at Tod Lake (PC0193)
2nd Place J. Philipchuk Hoar Frost at Big Bar Lake (PC0154)
3rd Place C. Kawaguchi Thompson River looking to Spences Bridge (PC0063)

The TNRD photo contest Instagram site will continue to display the submitted photos. The submitted photos will also be reproduced and included in the TNRD’s 50th
anniversary time capsule to be opened in 2042 (the TNRD’s 75th anniversary).

Thanks to all the shutterbugs who contributed their stunning photographs for this contest and for sharing the beauty of the TNRD — the Region of B.C.’s Best!
