Honorary Photographer at Large Photo Contest winners
Congratulations to our new Honorary Photographer at Large, Susanna Messinger, who came in first place with "A fleet of dragonflies."
Second place goes to Alison Gould for "Gorgonian.” Third place goes to Kevin Bakker for “Sunset on the Okavango Delta, Botswana” Honorable mentions go to Rachel Cable for “Geladas in flight,” Jason Dobkowski for “Sleepy kit” and Kevin Bakker for “Lilac breasted-Roller, Kalahari Desert.”
Messinger receives the honorary title for the year of “Photographer at Large” in memory of David Bay who was the self-described “photographer at large” for EEB and its predecessor departments for 34 years. He touched the lives of hundreds of faculty, students and staff with his humor, good nature and expertise.
Congratulations to all of our winning photographers and thank you to everyone who submitted a photo and/or voted in the contest. As usual, there were so many beautiful photos that voting was difficult. The photo contest will return next fall. All of the photos can be viewed here.
