Every year it gets harder and harder to pick finalists 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. After difficult yet careful consideration, the judges have narrowed it down to 25 finalists. Now it’s your turn to vote for your favorite.
The voting period runs now through September 30. Vote up to once per day and share with your friends. Voters will determine the People’s Choice Award and seven Best Photo winners. CalTrout’s judges’ panel will determine the Grand Prize winner, plus 1st and 2nd place winners.
Winning photos will be featured on CalTrout’s website and in our digital magazine The Current, and our winners will get some great prizes from our sponsors, Sunset Magazine, Sage, Costa, & Yeti.
Thank you to everyone that submitted photographs and good luck! Winners will be announced on October 5th.
