Harvest 15 photo project

The Western Producer hosts a spring and a fall photo project each year and our fall initiative, titled #Harvest15, has just come to a close.

There was incredible participation in the project with over 700 hundred submissions, including pictures from across Canada, the US, and even Europe.

Choosing three winners out of such great photos was not an easy task.  There were many worthy photos and the people who shared their images should be proud of the amazing photo album we built together.

In the end The Western Producers editors choose a series of areal pictures taken by Matthew Scharf of three combines straight-cutting canola as our winner.

Congratulations Scharf, you are the winner of a $500 gift certificate from Don’s Photo.
