The seven categories of the contest are:

  • Prairie - Scenic photos from prairie regions; hidden treasures such as valleys, hills, and badlands; other natural features displaying the province's diverse geography in any season.
  • People and Places - Portraits of Saskatchewan people from all walks of life enjoying indoor or outdoor activities, and places that portray the community spirit and liveliness of Saskatchewan cities and towns, cityscapes, local attractions, and urban life. 
  • Wildlife - Images that highlight Saskatchewan's beautiful wild animals, birds, and insects.
  • Winter - Scenes of winter in Saskatchewan, from outdoor activities to wild snowy landscapes.
  • Woods and Water - Photography that features Saskatchewan's abundant lakes and rivers, as well as Saskatchewan's diverse forests and trees, from lodgepole pine and aspen groves in the south to the northern boreal forests.
  • Food and Drink - Photography of Saskatchewan's vibrant and varied culinary scene, along with brewers and distillers.
  • Video - Submit an edited piece or single-shot video (60 seconds maximum) of Saskatchewan wildlife, people, places, and landscapes.

Each category will have its own winner and the winners in those categories will receive a $500 Visa gift card. There will also be a Grand Prize winner, which will be selected from the six photography category winners, and they will receive an additional $500 Visa gift card. For the video category, the prize is a $1000 Visa gift card. However, the video category is not eligible for the Grand Prize.
