Honorable Mention (click on the name to see the image):

The contest not only inspired members to capture the Coast Guard in action but also generated fresh, exciting photos for Coast Guard publications. Seventeen people had their photos published in publications such as the Coast Guard 2009 Posture Statement. The response to the contest, which ran last year, was overwhelming, with about 1,200 photos received. The unexpected response, cumbersome judging process, and other workload priorities caused the lengthy delay in announcing the winners. We have learned several lessons that should significantly improve our timeliness for future contests. The next photo contest will be announced within a few weeks.

Let us know if one of these images is yours. We’d love to hear about taking the picture and what you think helped to create the amazing photograph.
