It was a tough choice picking the winner of our Cover Photo contest, but we finally chose…
We had an amazing response from Crane & Hoist Canada magazine readers for our 2022 Cover Photo contest, and you made it very tough for us to choose a winner.
Like any good editor, I passed the buck to someone else to decide, turning to our magazine design team to select the best photo to grace our Sept/Oct cover.
After a lot of deliberation and back and forth (trust me, there were more than a few photos that could have made it), we finally agreed on a winner to grace our cover: Michael Demelo’s high above the clouds submission from Oxford Builders Supplies.
