We thank everyone who submitted photos for the 2023 FJP Photo Contest. We had 360 photos submitted this year, more than in previous years, by a significant amount. The photos submitted again this year were stunning. We have all the submitted photos playing on the TV in front of our office. With so many beautiful photos, it was difficult to select the five finalists in each category.
Again, this year, we separated the photos into three categories: Nature, Animals, and Other. The FJP team selected the five finalists in each of the three categories. A survey was then emailed to all clients with the five finalist photos in each category and our clients selected the winning photo in each of the three categories. The finalists received a $25 Amazon gift card, and the winners received a $100 Amazon gift card.
The five finalist photos in the Animals category included various animals, including some rare and exotic animals.
The 2023 FJP Photo Contest Animals Category Finalists Were:
- Nyla Bull Scratching Ear, South Africa – Melinda B.
- Bald Eagle, Whitefish, Montana – Rob F.
