Little Boy Blue wins Sam Steele Days Photo Contest
The Sam Steele Society is pleased to announce the lucky winners of the 2014 Sam Steele Days Photo Contest, Ryan and Mary McFarlane of Cranbrook.
A photo of son, Lucas McFarlane, the now six-months-old boy with big blue eyes, was captured by father Ryan while contently waiting for the Sam Steele Days Parade and brandishing an adorable moustache laden soother in his mouth. Ryan sent the photo to proud Grandma, Mel McFarlane, who promptly entered it in the contest, with parent’s permission.
A committee of eight chose the photo out of the many entries that were submitted following the biggest Sam Steele Days community festival that the City of Cranbrook has ever seen, in celebration of the festival’s 50-year milestone.
In addition to the $50 prize, the photo of ‘Little Boy Blue,’ Lucas McFarlane, will snag the centre spot on the sixth panel of the “Faces of Sam Steele” photo collage, reserved for all the images collected from the 50th celebration of the festival, including all others submitted for the contest. The photo collage will be on public display prior to and during every Sam Steele Days until a permanent exhibit location can be secured.
