Top Photos from the GNPA Expo Contest

Thirteen GNPA photographers were honored April 10 when the annual four-day EXPO weekend  concluded at Jekyll Island.

Winners in three categories (landscape, macro and wildlife) were selected from a large field of entries. All told, 19 images were singled out by the judges. All photos had to be taken by Expo participants during the first three days of the event.

Janet Newton and Trish Cosentino each had three images chosen by the judges, while Jamie Anderson and Jim Squires had two apiece. Others whose work was selected were Joyce Glover, Jerry Black, Bonnie Gehling, Bill Lutin, Chris Dahl, Herm Donatelli, Alice Hawks, David Dunagan and Stewart Woodard.  Congratulations to all!

The entries were judged by David Akoubian, Mark Buckler and Larry Winslett.

The first place images in each of the three categories are shown below. To view all the winning images and honorable mentions, click here to visit the GNPA Galleries page.
