The votes have been tallied and the judges have made their selection for the latest round of our “Reasons To Love Idaho” photo contest. Once again an outstanding array of photos were submitted from all across the state. The winning entries represent diverse and exciting subject matter and photo treatments. In fact you’ll find a little bit of everything in the winners portfolio including: wind swept landscapes shot in black & white, sunset panoramas of flowers in bloom that go on forever, and the tranquility and stunning beauty of an Idaho lake. We applaud everyone who made such a great effort to participate in the contest and encourage you to continue your search for the ideal photo of Idaho.
The winning entries from round 20 came from: Ediidong in Rexburg who submitted his 1st place photo titled “Bold” and he received a new iPad for his entry. Gary in Meridian sent in a photo he calls “Payette Lake” and received the 2nd place prize of $75. The 3rd place entry was submitted by Paul in Grangeville and is titled “Camas Prairie Sunset,” he took home $50. Christian in Eagle had his camera working after dark to capture the image he titled “Spooky Barn,” which was worth $50 as a People’s Choice award. Finally, the Judge’s Choice award went to Darcie in Pocatello who found an interesting composition while attending the Blackfoot Fair and won $75.
We hope you enjoy looking over both the award-winning entries in round 20 and all the photos that have been submitted over the years. From north to south and east to west there are images that convey the grandeur of our great state and its unique cultural beauty.
