“Congratulations to the winners
of the 2011 photo contest, whose photos were selected from hundreds of
beautiful photos sent in last year,” said DEP’s Florida Park Service Director Donald V. Forgione.
“Florida’s state parks and trails offer a fantastic canvas for one of a kind
photos, and I would like to thank everyone who sent in a photo and helped spread the word about all Florida's award-winning parks have to offer.”
photo contest winners are selected from the 12 monthly photo contest winners
throughout 2011 voted on each on month by visitors to the Florida Online Park
Guide. The photographs were evaluated by professional photographers
John Moran, Kevin Kolczynski and Lynn Berreitter to determine the top three
winners. A Florida State Parks Family Annual Entrance Pass will be presented to
Ms. Clark. Ms. Hopwood and Ms. Crawford will both receive Florida State Parks
Individual Annual Entrance Passes.
2012 Florida State Parks and State Trails Photo Contest allows visitors to share
their experiences at state parks and on state trails. Register and submit your
favorite photos for a chance to win a Florida State Parks Passport. Visit the Photo Contest
