The front page photo taken by Treena Mielke at last year’s Polar Dip won first place in the feature photo category of the Alberta Weekly Newspapers Association Atco Photographic Awards competition. Titled Free-e-zing, it showed Jodi Hinshaw and Julie Saby jumping into the water to raise money for Community Partners.
Awards were presented at the association’s annual symposium at the end of January.
This year’s Polar Dip takes place in Centennial Park Saturday as part of Winterfest activities. Be there at 1 p.m. sharp to watch the fun.
