After over 230 photo submissions, some tough decisions by our judges, and—most importantly—the final tally of your votes, we are thrilled to announce the winners of our 2019 Photo Contest. It was a close contest, with the winning photos decided by just a couple of votes. It was also certified a clean election. No Russian meddling here! At one point, we considered sending it to the Supreme Court, but calmer heads prevailed 🙂
The quality of the photos this year was outstanding. In my opinion, it was the best overall collection of photos in the 9 years of the contest. Thank you to everyone who participated, voted, and shared their comments and stories. Our annual photo contest is one of the most fun events we experience as a company and we are already thinking about how to make next year’s 10th anniversary contest the best yet. Enjoy this year’s winning photos below…
