In June, we asked Flourish readers to keep their eyes peeled for opportunities to take great photographs of God’s creation, and to send us their best shots as entries in the first-ever Flourish Creation Care Photo Contest. The images we received did not disappoint. Readers submitted gorgeous, inspiring images in three categories: The Human Landscape, Delighting in Creation, and God’s Land; God’s Creatures. It was fascinating to see how those three category titles were interpreted and represented by your work. A great big THANK YOU to everyone who took and submitted photos, and an equally big THANK YOU to our judges: Alexis Illyn and Chuck Summers.
The first Creation Care Photo Contest has been a success, and we can’t wait to see what the next one yields. Check out this year’s contest winners below, and start taking photos to submit to next year’s contest now!
