The 2019 Saskatchewanderer Search Begins Now!

With more than 80,000 social media fans across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, the Saskatchewanderer is a ‘must follow’ for many Saskatchewan residents and tourists.

As the program continues for its ninth year, Wanderer hopefuls, who are up to the challenge of showcasing our province in a unique way, can apply to become the next Saskatchewanderer until November 9, 2018.

Kevin Dunn, our 2018 Saskatchewanderer, has brought this program to new heights, literally, by exploring Saskatchewan through the view of an aerial drone, which has captured this province with a new perspective.

“This position allowed me to stray from the beaten path and really experience Saskatchewan,” Dunn said.  “Being born and raised in Saskatchewan, I tended to travel around our province, but not necessarily experience it along the way.  This job allowed me to take the time to meet new people, stop to hear their stories and be welcomed into the communities of Saskatchewan, I am proud to be from Saskatchewan and honoured to have been the Saskatchewanderer!”

Tourism Saskatchewan and the Ministries of Parks, Culture and Sport, Agriculture, and Trade and Export Development have partnered with the program again this year and are excited to support the next Wanderer as he/she showcases the province through a whole new perspective.

“Kevin Dunn is a talented storyteller and an inspiring ambassador for Saskatchewan,” Minister Responsible for Tourism Saskatchewan and Parks, Culture and Sport Gene Makowsky said.  “He captured the imagination of fans and followers across social media though his innovative use of drone photography.  Tourism Saskatchewan extends its appreciation to Dunn for his impressive work as the 2018 Saskatchewanderer.”

Each applicant is required to shoot, edit and submit their own original video explaining why they should become the next Saskatchewanderer.

Applications will be accepted until noon on Friday, November 9, 2018 at www.saskatchewanderer.ca/apply.  Questions about the application process can be emailed to saskatchewandererofficial@gmail.com.
