Photo Contest Winners Announced - Click here to see dazzling recreation shots

The Wilderness Society congratulates Halimah Martin on winning the Wild Adventures photo contest!  Halimah’s photo of kayaking in the iconic Grand Canyon won our supporter’s hearts. As the winner, Halimah will receive a $100 certificate to REI and the photo will appear in our next membership calendar.

We also congratulate our finalists and semifinalists. Finalists will receive a 2012 Wilderness calendar.

Thanks to all of you shutterbugs and nature-lovers who showed your love of the outdoors.  We received nearly 2,000 photos of recreation in the wild, ranging from daring exploits in exotic locales to peaceful moments in dark forests.  The incredible quality and range of entries made paring down to only a few finalists very difficult – but enjoyable.  The photos show your obvious love for the America’s great outdoors and the many recreational opportunities it provides.

We’re always looking for photos to help tell the story of why the special and wild places in our country deserve protection.  If you have some photos you think might help with that mission – please consider donating them here.
