The 2013 wildflower photography contest that we sponsor in partnership with Texas Highways magazine ended on May 6. Soon after that, we announced the winner of the public voting portion of the contest, Carrol Fibich of Brookfield, Wisconsin who received 4,329 votes for her entry "Monarch on Butterfly Milkweed." Fibich entered her photograph in the Wildlife in the Native Landscape category.
Runner-up number 1 "Stop to Smell the…Bluebonnets" by Sarah Huddleston Garcia received 3,762 votes. A black and white photograph, "Black & White Yucca" by Carol Fox Henrichs, received 2,367 votes. The latter two photographs were entered in the People with Wildflowers and Botanical categories, respectively.
We now turn our attention to private judging. Winners will be selected in each of the five categories. We will announce the winners here in July and publish winning entries in the Fall 2013 issue of Wildflower magazine.
Our sincere thanks to everyone who entered this year's contest.
