Our first of two photo contests for the Year of the Okefenokee has now been completed and the winning images are fantastic! We would like to start by thanking all those who participated. Your participation not only helped the GNPA and GA Sierra Club, it also helped shine a light on the Okefenokee, a true Georgia gem. The images winning first place in each of the four categories are featured above, and below you’ll find a list of all winners in each category. The First through Third Place winners will receive gift cards according to their place as per the contest description. Thanks so much to Amy Gulick for lending us her expertise and talent as our judge. Make sure to keep your camera clicking and your eyes peeled for the Second Okefenokee centered photo contest scheduled for November of this year. The judge for that contest will be renowned nature/conservation photographer, Peter Essick.
