The competition for 2021 was close! Our contestants blew it out of the water with spectacular photos of California's outdoor treasures. Every year it gets harder and harder to pick the finalist photos from the striking submissions we receive. This year was no exception. We received almost 400 submissions and our judges enjoyed seeing your photos that beautifully showcased California's waterways across the state. Once we had our 25 finalists, it was up to the people to vote and decide the remaining winners.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest, either submitting your photo and/or voting! And now, enjoy these beautiful images...
