People’s Choice Award – GARNA Photo Contest 2016

Close to 130 photos were submitted for our 2016 Photo Contest. Submissions were judged by an expert panel of professional photographers who selected 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th (and in tie situations, 5th) place winners in each category. Now it’s your chance to vote for your favorite photo in each category that best communicates the beauty, grandeur, delight and special quality of the Upper Arkansas Valley. The People’s Choice winner will be featured on the front of note cards (and possibly other products) available for sale soon.


Voting is open now through Friday, October 21 at 5:00 pm. Please spread the word!

Here are a few photos in the running to pique your interest…we aren’t going to share the photographers’ names until after the voting.
