2018 Governor’s Photo Contest Winners Chosen

BISMARCK, N.D. – Steve Silseth’s photo “Pintail” has been named Best in Show in the 15th annual North Dakota Governor’s Photo Contest.

Gov. Doug Burgum recognized the winning photographs and honorable mentions in a ceremony October 10, 2018, in Memorial Hall of the North Dakota Capitol. Joining Burgum for the presentation were North Dakota Tourism Director Sara Otte Coleman and North Dakota Council on the Arts (NDCA) Executive Director Kim Konikow.

In “Pintail,” Silseth captured the moment just before the duck takes flight, leaving a trail of geysers through the water. The photo also took first place in the Wildlife Category and was selected as best from the 1,072 submitted to this year’s contest.
