Heart of Dakota 2018 photo contest winners announced!

The long-awaited announcement is here!

Thank-you to everyone who participated in the 2018 photo contest; we were amazed by the amount of photo submissions we received! When we went through the photos, it made our day to see so many smiling faces! 🙂 

Picking the winners was not easy at all – there were so many good choices! After several days of looking at all the submissions, we finally narrowed it down to our absolute favorites.

And the winners are…

First Place: submission by Darcie A.


Second Place: submission by Rodica H.


Third Place double-entry: submissions by Kaitlyne M. and Lauren E.

(Editor’s note: We had such a close tie between the two 3rd place nominees that we ultimately decided to award them both the $15 Heart of Dakota gift card for 3rd place.)

Congratulations! We will be emailing the prize gift cards to you shortly. 😀

Honorable mentions

As we mentioned earlier, with so many excellent submissions, it was very hard to declare only 4 finalists! We felt that these photos deserved a spot in our list. So, in no particular order, here are our honorable mentions!
