Time to Vote! Photo Contest People’s Choice Award

4 comments

We are in week eight for the People’s Choice award for this year’s Coast Guard Photo Contest. This is the final set of photos and voting begins today!

Over the past eight weeks, we’ve highlighted 40 photos out of the over 700 photos submitted for this year’s Coast Guard Photo Contest. It is time to pick your favorites from these 40 images and vote for the People’s Choice award.

Voting opens today and will stay open until next Tuesday, March 2. We will announce the People’s Choice winning photo on Wednesday, March 3.

Click here to cast your votes for your People’s Choice.

You can vote for each photo but should reserve your highest rating for your favorite. **NOTE: Please allow the site to completely upload all photos before clicking the images and voting. This will allow optimal viewing of the pictures and ensures your vote is collected.

Keep in mind, these 40 images are less than 6% of the total number of pictures submitted to the Coast Guard Photo Contest. The official judging for that contest will take place in March and the judges will look at all 777 photos to select the winners. We’ll certainly report back to you on the winners of that contest when they are selected but now is the time for you to pick the People’s Choice.

Here is the final set of five photos to round out the pool of 40 candidates…

  1. Vote for Tim Manning’s photo of CG Jayhawk.
    The first photo is spectacular, but it looks like Photoshop helped.

  2. First, thanks for doing this, and Bravo Zulu to those who made it into the top 40. Phenomenal shots. I just wanted to point out that when going to the voting link (which is a bit subtle, by the way), the caption under one of my husbands submissions is incorrect. It is the third down on the far right captioned “A diver investigates a jettisoned anchor on Maro Reef, Hawaii”. It should read “AMT2 Anthony Gonzales conducts his annual training ride in the Shallow Water Egress Trainer (SWET). The SWET prepares helicopter crews in the event they have to ditch in the water and escape a sinking helicopter.” as captioned in Round 5. Thanks.

  3. I’m casting a vote for Coast Guard Cutter Barracuda patrols the waters off of Northern California. (U.S. Coast Guard photo by Lt. j.g. Todd Vorenkamp)
