Just when we think we've seen Newfoundland and Labrador from every angle, readers gobsmack us again with their stunning phots of landscapes, seasons, wildlife and overall essence of this incredible place. It's why, after more than 20 years of running this annual contest, judging the photos is still a favourite time of year for Downhome staff. It wasn't easy to choose, and we reached out to the public for help on the final one, but we are proud to present the 2020 Downhome Calendar photos.
Each of the 13 winners will receive 10 copies of the calendar and a one-year membership to Downhome magazine. In addition, a random draw from the 13 winners netted one lucky person the grand prize: a free trip for four adults with our contest sponsor, O'Brien's Whale and Bird Tours. Congratulations to the winning entries, which you can preview by clicking the link below, and to the winner of the O'Brien's boat tour, Tanya Northcott! And be sure to check out the 2021 Calendar Contest below. You could win an Early Bird prize! We will select four entries received in the month of November and put them to a public vote. The winner will have their photo made into a postcard which will be sold at Downhome Shoppes, and they will get 10 free postcards plus $50 Downhome Dollars.
Thank you to our awesome contest sponsor, O'Brien's Whale and Bird Tours!
