Seeing our state through the eyes – and camera lenses – of others offers a glimpse into the worlds of those around us. From picturesque landscapes to funny animals to Alabama landmarks, there’s no shortage of photo opportunities for anyone with a camera, a curious eye and a little patience.
Alabama Living wanted to see some of these great photos taken by our readers, so again this year, we sponsored a photo contest. We accepted photos through our website from May 1-31 in four categories: This is Alabama, Capture the Seasons, Cute Critters and Fun and Laughter. We had 228 submissions that met the eligibility requirements.
Our judge was Phil Scarsbrook, a professional photographer with more than 40 years of experience who has judged our two previous photo contests. Scarsbrook did not know the identities of the photographers as he judged the entries.
We had submissions from every part of the state, and we’re proud to present thejudge’s choices for you to enjoy. And start thinking about what you’ll enter next year!
