Winter 2015 Photo Contest Winners

Early in December 2014 we announced a Photo Contest for IVDAARA members and decided on a “Winter Wonderland” theme.  When we picked this theme we had no idea that our area would have its first green Christmas in many, many years!  The snow did eventually come at the end of December and our members were able to get out and get some good winter photos before the contest ended on February 28, 2015.  A total of 60 photos were submitted to the contest and 11 were selected as finalists, representing 5 different shutterbugs.  Our Board of Directors served as judges and selected their top 4 picks.  Congratulations to our winners and thanks to all those who participated.

Be sure to get out and take photos for our next contest “Spring Bursts Forth!“.  The contest will open April 1, 2015 and run till  May 31, 2015.

Submit your photos to:
