Some great prizes for the top two winners.

Here are the Rules for the 2022 contest. Please follow them or your entry could be deleted without notice.

This is NOT a biggest sheep contest, but a "best photo" contest. The winning 2022 photo will be judged on the following criteria:

*to note you can't enter a photo for someone else. They must enter it themselves (per rules #4-6) , otherwise the sheep guides and those with big families/friend circles would have better odds. There is a thread for those photos or photos that aren't contest worthy: 2022 Sheep Photos

1) WOW Factor. Is it a great photo that grabs the viewer? This takes in lighting, color, uniqueness, etc. View previous contest winners to see what we're looking for.

2) Composition- by that I mean the way in which the different parts that make up your photo are arranged- is there too much background, not enough animal? or visa versa? Are the horn tips out of the frame or the hunters head cut off? Or is it a good balance between the sheep, the hunter, the terrain? (the hunter is not required to appear in the photo.)

3) Size of animal. This doesn't mean biggest animal wins, but if #1 and #2 are equal, we'll chose the bigger animal (got a problem with that? Home Depot sells sand by the bag.)

4) Must be a photo of a sheep you harvested in 2022--(you must be able to prove date of harvest)

5) By December 10th, post up your best harvest photo on this thread

6) Must be a Rokslide member to enter your photo. One Photo Per Sheep Only. We delete posts with multiple photos. One photo per sheep only. If you harvest multiple sheep (lucky dog!), you can enter one photo for each

7) Also, by posting on this thread, you agree to let Rokslide and Stone Glacier use any of the photos in promotional material without compensation

8) Any international winner is responsible for border tax, custom fees, excessive postage fees, etc.

Here are the finalists from 2021 if you want to get an idea of what winning photos look like: 2021 Finalists

i'm sure this is no contest winner. my solo photography skills need work lol. I was also losing daylight and more concerned about getting him in the pack and back to camp. Nonetheless, here is my first Ram!

Maybe not a scenic trophy photo, but I sure like these ATL photos.

If you’re not the hunter who shot this ram. Please just move it into its own thread in the sheep forum. The contest is for the hunters who took the sheep per the rules. And we like that photo too!
