PHOTO CONTEST WINNERS UNVEILED NEXT WEEK
Hundreds of amateur photographers captured all the things we love most about Idaho’s outdoors — the scenery, the wildlife and the fun — for this year’s Idaho Outdoors/Idaho Camera photo contest.
Four expert judges pored over 305 photos last week to find the five winners and the roughly two dozen honorable mentions that will be featured in next week’s special edition of Idaho Outdoors and at IdahoStatesman.com.
Can’t wait to see the winners? Watch the video at IdahoStatesman.com for an inside look at the judging or check out last year’s winners.
