Once again, the highly anticipated results of the Currents Cover Photo Contest are in! Over the last two weeks of November and the first week of December we received 130 amazing photo submissions to vie for the chance to grace the covers of Currents during 2020. This is the most submissions we have had since we started this contest 4 years ago, so thank you all for your keen participation and enthusiasm.
After much thoughtful deliberation by the BCA Communications team, the winning photos were selected and are posted in this photo album for all to enjoy.
We would like to thank everyone who submitted photos for the contest. There were some awesome submissions, and really, they were all winners in our eyes! Having said that, we had to choose 12 for the PDF covers done for the next year of Currents. So, without further ado, the winners are (in no particular order):
- Barbara Lyall, Pegasus II
- Brent Alley, Pegasus II
- Cecily Grant, Cygnus X
- John Schnellback, Beyond the Stars
- Kit Griffin, Swan
- Margaret Krause, Whistler
- Max Shaw, Fluenta
- Pam Simper, Roundabout II
- Rodney Morris, Oh!
- Shawn Wright, Callisto
- Tony Roberts, Mayaluga
- Trina Holt, Shea
Winners of the 2020 Currents Cover Photo Contest will receive a $10.00 Currents credit to be applied to their membership dues.
I will sign off with a great big “thank you” to the Currents judging panel, who stepped up to the plate and helped select the best photos based on the given criteria. It was no easy task! Thank you so much.
