Description: Established in 1988, its purpose was to help stimulate the economy and bring arts and culture to the underserved, rural community in the form of photography.  The primary focus of STW is to create a critical cultural exchange between residents and outside participants and relieve some from the isolation of our urban area. Our annual event features workshops, presenters, exhibits, juried the-westshows, vendors and entertainment. All exhibits, Vendor’s Alley, Presenter’s Gallery and Give It Your Best Shot Photo Contest are open to the public and we encourage hem to interact by voting for the GIYBS’s “People’s Choice” award. On average, 300+ people participate with STW and it generates ~$150,000.00 in economic stimulus for the area and much of the community is directly involved in the event in some way.  Shooting the West is a photography symposium with distinguished presenters in many different photographic fields. Throw in workshops, participant shows, juried contests, vendors like Manfrotto and Epson, portfolio reviews, great Basque food and lots of Winnemucca style fun… and you have a pretty good idea what it’s all about.  For more information please call 877-623-3501
