The 2013 edition of the Great Southwest Calendar has been printed and distributed across Saskatchewan. This year’s calendar showcases photography from James R. Page, Wes H. Bloom, Randy Lewis, Bobbi-jo Knakoske, Gene Pavelich and Marg Wiebe.
The cover of the 2013 Great Southwest calendar features the work of James R. Page, author of Wild Prairie. James told us when he first moved to Saskatchewan to work in Grasslands National Park that one of his goals was to capture the bison in winter. He has succeeded, and the result is stunning. We are pleased to have been able to use it on the calendar.
The 2013 Great Southwest Calendar was printed on FSC certified stock and produced with the support of Living Sky Casino, Swift Current Mall and Print West.
