From sun-drenched African vistas to ethereal wintertime landscapes to poignant portraits of some of the world’s most fascinating wildlife, our 1st annual photo contest brought in some truly amazing images.  With so many great entries, it was quite a challenge to narrow it down! So, with much excitement, we are happy to announce that the results are in and the winners have been chosen, as well as several noteworthy Honorable Mentions.

Congratulations to our 1st place winner, Corinne Steiger, for her striking, action-packed image of two sunlit lionesses playing in Botswana’s Kalahari Desert.  Corinne has won a Tundra Lodge Photo Tour to Churchill, Manitoba to photograph wild polar bears!  Our 2nd place winner is Jim Eagan, who submitted a beautiful photograph of a horseback rider in Patagonia’s Torres del Paine region in Chile to win a $500 gift card to B & H Photo + Video.  Our 3rd place winner, Joseph Moore, artfully captured the graceful movement of two gazelles racing over the savanna in another scene from Botswana. He will receive two  World Wildlife Fund Gift Adoption Cards (total value: $100), allowing him to make two symbolic animal adoptions chosen from a selection of 100 species.

Congratulations again, and thank you to everyone who entered!
