Local photographers win OTA postcard contest


The Oliver Tourism Association Postcard Contest received 279 entries, with the majority from Oliver.

After two weeks of voting and over 1200 votes, the people chose Carol Bentley’s image, “Face in the Clouds” for the prestigious people’s choice award with 257 votes.

Other winners include:  Russell Work from Oliver with his image, “Tuc-el-Nuit Wine,” Bernard Bedard of Oliver with his image, “Old Homestead,” Kari Hentzelt of Oliver with her image, “Gehringer Brothers Vista,” and Sarah Wilson of Oliver with her image, “Grapes on the Vine.”

The five winning photos will become the new official series of postcards for Oliver. The postcards will be printed and circulated with the photographer’s name credited.  The winners have received a “Proud to be an Oliverite” gift basket valued at over $230.

The postcards will be available for purchase at the Oliver Visitor Centre within the next few weeks, just in time for the summer season. Congratulations to the winners.
