This year’s photo contest was the best one yet! We received more than 1,700 beautiful entries. From dolphins to divers, you wowed our judges with your photographic prowess.
We’d like to offer our congratulations to Joseph Zarrella and Alexia Dunand for winning top prize.
Joseph’s photo, “Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle Playing in the Surf” collected the most public votes and earned the “People’s Choice” award.
Alexia’s photo, also of a green sea turtle, received the “Judges’ Choice” award.
With so many entries, our judges had to make a tough decision. The following photographs were recognized as finalists:
- Dancing on the Sea by Aaron Goulding
- Starting out Life in Palm Beach by Ben Hicks
- Red and White by Larissa Roorda
- Goliath Grouper of the Esso Bonaire by Richard Apple
You can also see our staff picks on our Instagram page.
Thank you again to everyone who participated in this year’s photo contest. We look forward to seeing your entries during our next contest!
