2013 Photo Contest Winners

It’s that time of year again. We are pleased to release the results of our annual photo contest.

More than 600 photos were submitted this year in our first fully electronic contest. These photos will be used for years in our publications and advocacy materials to help PCTA protect, preserve and promote the trail.

Except for the “cover” category, you can see the winning photos in the slideshow below. Winning cover photos are being held back for the magazine. You’ll just have to wait and see.

We want to give special thanks to our volunteer judges David Thurber, Ryan Krauter and Lee Terkelsen. David is a retired award-winning photojournalist and commercial photographer. Ryan is a freelance photographer. And Lee, who organizes the effort, is a retired high school photography teacher and former editor of the PCT Communicator.

Thanks guys for a tremendous effort.

Lastly, we want to thank everyone who submitted photographs this year. We can’t wait to see what you have for us next year.
