The Friends 2013 Photo Contest
received 60 entries this year, and our judges had a difficult time picking the winners from so many excellent images.
Our judges were: Sam Koltinsky from Marvo Entertainment who was in town for the local debut of his award-winning documentary "America's Darling: the Story of Jay N. 'Ding" Darling"; Joe Wiegand, the nationally-celebrated Theodore Roosevelt reenactor, joining us for the third year in a row to help us celebrate Refuge Week, and local author and photographer Sharon Lindsay (of the "Puddles Blog fame).
The Best in Show trophy in the Youth Division was awarded to Brittany Harris for "Hiking". The Adult Division Best in Show went to Sarah Lemmons for "Hard Work". Both Brittany and Sarah will receive a check for $50 as well as a trophy for their achievements.
Once the Savannah NWR Visitor Center reopens, the winning photos in both divisions and all categories will be placed on display. These winners will receive Gift Certificates to The Gator Hole, our nature and book store in the Visitor Center.
Congratulations to all the entrants and especially to the winners. Keep shooting those photos, and watch this web site for the announcement of our Third Annual Photo Contest coming soon!
