Maui Jim Photo Contest - The Winners
Given the number of excellent photo submissions we received for our Maui Jim Sunglasses Best of 2011 Fishing Photo contest, picking the winners was no easy task. The stunning images we received should serve as a reminder to keep your camera handy when on the water, despite how hard it is to put down your rod and get behind the lens. The images you capture will be with you forever.
The first four winning photos shown below will receive a pair of Maui Jim Sunglasses from their special edition Guy Harvey collection, while the others will receive a Maui Jim script hat. Several of the winners will also have their photos added to the Hatch Magazine header rotation. If your photo is shown below, please use our contact form to send us your full contact information (at least your name, mailing address and email).
Many thanks to Maui Jim sunglasses for sponsoring the contest, to our judges (Angus Drummond, Austin Trayser, Louis Cahill, Andrew Bennett, Tom Larimer, Kurt Budliger, Corey Kruitbosch, Jim Plante, Mark Lance, Zach Mertens and J.E.B. Hall) and to all who entered.
We've also put together a collection of 15 excellent photos that didn't make the winners' cut, head here to view the runners up.
