Nominations are now being accepted for Faces of Winkler, 2019. Hosted by Winkler Arts & Culture, this is the third year for the popular show.
Each year, they choose 12 local people to feature. Each of the 12 people are assigned to one artist and one photographer who capture the essence of that person using their artistic approach.
“This is by far my favourite event that we do there,” Tomm Penner of Winkler Arts & Culture said.
Faces of Winkler isn’t just for local people who are well known. Past exhibitions have featured women, men, youth, children, elected officials, people with disabilities, teachers, business people, volunteers and others.
“They’re not the kind of people who are generally on the front page of the paper,” Penner explained. “There’s no criteria for the people that we showcase other than they have a story, and everyone does.”

Nominees don’t have to call Winkler home, but should be from the region.
Nominations must be made before Oct. 1, and the show will take place in January, 2019.
