The Town of Ponoka announced the winners of its photo contest in a press release on Feb. 27.

The contest was held earlier this winter.

Richard Bone won first prize for his photo of the Ponoka Stampede fireworks and midway.

There was a tie for second place: Jessica Jones for her photo of her son at the Ponoka Splash Park, and the Ponoka Youth Centre for their photo of two youth in the pool at the Ponoka Aquaplex.

There was no third prize winner due to the second place tie.

Prize winners were awarded gift bags that include Town of Ponoka gift certificates that can be applied toward a Town of Ponoka Aquaplex membership or for use at any Town recreational facility ($100 for first place; $75 for each second place winner).

Twenty-four photos were submitted in the contest. The winning photos were selected by a three-member judges panel that based its decisions on the quality of photos and what the judges considered to be the photos that best showcased Ponoka’s beauty and hometown-feel. T

he Town is planning to launch another photo contest in the spring. Details will be announced in the coming weeks.
