A release of the limited edition poster, signed by the winner, takes place Saturday, January 13 at the gallery.
Second place went to Diane Akey, who recently moved to Salmon Arm, and third place went to photographer Loyd Chapplow, of Osoyoos. Honourable mentions went to Jane Scheffler and Richard McGuire, both of Osoyoos.
