Announcing the Winners of our 2012 Photo Contest!

Natural Habitat Adventures August 1, 2012 7

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!

    Simply stunning–and many of the honorable mentions could just as easily have been named winners! Thanks for sharing.

    I would love to have a print of the moose photograph by Paul Bauck. It’s beautiful. Please let me know if it is possible? Karen

    The pictures you chose are lovely. But I would have given first place to Richard Ross for his swans, second place to Richard Ross for his landscape (where is that?!), and third to Doug for his three lionesses on the hunt.

    I enjoyed seeing the honorable mentions in the photo contest, but would really like to know where (or on what Nat Hab trip) these were taken. I have a good idea where most were taken, but one in particular is the one of 3 tigers by Ron Taylor. Where was this taken? Great photos make you want to visit that place!
    Thanks!
