The pictures for this year’s Photo Contest are in and the results are impressive! Throughout 2010, Coast Guard men and women from around the world captured remarkable photographs of maritime security missions, joint interagency operations, international exercises, and routine training evolutions to take you behind the scenes of life in the U.S. Coast Guard.
With more than 600 images submitted for this year’s contest and only four chosen as overall winners, many of these pictures will not get the recognition they deserve. So, while the “official” judges spend the next couple of months huddled over light boxes and pondering pixels, we’re asking you to help us determine the “People’s Choice.”
We have selected 40 of the best photos submitted to share with you. Every Monday over the next eight weeks, we will post a set of five pictures.
To make your vote count on this blog, just click on the picture(s) you like and post a positive comment. You can also click on the link to the image in the Flickr photo set and leave your comment there. It’s your choice… your “People’s Choice.”
Below is the first set of photos for your consideration…
