If you were unable to attend the Volunteer Appreciation evening in April, you missed the opportunity to see some of the great work the professional photographers do, by catching the essence of race weekend and the events leading up to it on film. But you also missed the opportunity to be a judge in the first annual Volunteer Photograph contest!
All of our volunteers were urged to submit their very “best” photos, that they felt captured the essence of CopperDog.
While many photos were submitted, it appears that our volunteers love one thing the most- sled dogs!
Our top 3 finishers captured some close-ups of these four-legged athletes. But what was amazing was that the winners were all shots of the dogs…well let’s just say… participating in something other than racing. All three photos, showed what these dogs deserve the most after a race…rest, relaxation and a little sunshine!
Sherry Mattson took first place with an up close and personal view, of a beautiful blue- eyed pup (shown below).
Barb James, who landed both the second and third place spots (shown below), submitted photos that accurately shows, how most of these dogs must feel after a well run race… “I just need some sun and a place to lay my head”! Both ladies won a free CopperDog shirt.
Congratulations to our winners and thanks to all the volunteers who submitted some great shots. Keep practicing those photo skills and you may get that winning shot next year!
