Nature’s Best Ocean Views Contest 2009 announces winners

Recommended Posts

Received this email from Nature's Best just now. Congratulations to all of the winners!

 

Nature’s Best Photography Magazine is pleased to announce the winners of the Ocean Views Photography Contest!

Out of nearly 8,000 submitted photos, 26 images have been selected as winners. All winning images will be published in the next issue of Nature's Best Photography magazine due out this summer. If you were not selected to as a winner in this year’s contest, we encourage you to continue with the great work! We received so many excellent photos, which made our selection process very difficult!

 

Our next Ocean Views competition will open for entries in the Fall of 2009 as we launch a new alliance with the Divers Alert Network. This new partnership will bring enhanced opportunities for image display through online, print, and exhibition presentations. Stay connected to our blog (www.naturesbestblog.com) for more information and updates.

 

We appreciate your patience in receiving this announcement. Thank you for participating in this years' competition—the images entered were very high quality—and we look forward to seeing more of your photography in the future.

 

See the attached list to view the names of the winners.

 

All the best,

The Nature's Best Team

I was really stunned when I opened the PDF and found out I had won the grand prize. This is one of my favorite images and I enjoyed it more as whale sharks are the focus of my scientific research...Here is the winning image - thanks for all the kudos...

Here's my humble little guy:

Linda

 

Linda, really love it!

 

As I said before, it is not that it is just a gorgeous macro photograph; but the quality of the communication you captured, between you and the creature is extraordinary! You have a gift as is said! Plus you know your technical stuff.

 

Best Always, Carol
