Judges

Judging the photo contest were seven members of the Tampa Bay Sea Kayakers club on June 9, 2009.




Didn't win this time?

You had to post a photo on the Florida Paddling Trails Association website between April 1 and May 31, 2009. Many high quality photos were entered but according to the rules a canoe, kayak or other paddlecraft must be discernible in the photo and the photo must be taken in Florida within the past three years. Don't give up if you didn't win this time. A new contest just might be in the works.
