Weyburn in Focus: a photography & fine art competition

We're celebrating all things that make Weyburn better, brighter and stronger. We invite you to grab your camera, paint brush or other art media and show us what inspires you about our amazing community! There’s so much to choose from:

  • breathtaking landscapes and local landmarks,
  • living skies of brilliant sunsets and magnificent storms,
  • generosity of spirit and community leadership,
  • buds and blooms and wondrous wildlife,
  • a rich history and a future full of possibilities!
Capture #yourweyburn! Capture what Weyburn means to you!


12 prizes awarded   /  $1000 Grand Prize


Prizes include:
  • First place grand prize of $1,000,
  • Second place prize of $500,
  • Third place prize of $250, and
  • Nine honorable mention prizes of $100
Preference will be given to entries that are recognizably local - and those that incorporate WCU brand colors, look and feel. It is important to note that the submission must be able to be reproduced as a print; so not all art media may be appropriate.  Works in oil, acrylic, watercolour, pen and ink, pencil, printmaking, photography are acceptable.



Just for the Winners

In addition to monetary prizes and bragging rights, we will publicly showcase the 12 winning entries!  Winning entries will be announced at a public unveiling gala.  Following the announcement, prints of winning entries will be showcased in:

  • a Weyburn Arts Council Gallery showing,
  • WCU branch locations' public areas and offices,
  • WCU marketing initiatives including website and social media, and
  • WCU's 2019 75th Anniversary Edition calendar.
