The title of this contest is very misleading. Should be NAFHA 2013 NATIONAL MEETING PHOTO CONTEST. Or at least thats what the restrictions lead me to believe.
Photos must have been taken in eastern North Carolina between the dates of 18-23 September 2013

Thank you for pointing that out, it has been changed. In the future, as to not clutter up the thread, it might be a better idea to PM the person in which your message was intended.

Hello everyone,

After much deliberation, the panel of judges have decided on the winning photos for this year's NAFHA meeting photo contest. There were some really great photos submitted which made it no easy task to choose so few winners. Contest winners have been notified via email. Winning photographs will be publicly announced via HerpNation Media in the coming weeks, so be sure to keep an eye out for the announcement!

I would personally like to extend a huge THANK YOU to EVERYONE who participated in this year's photo contest. And of course a THANK YOU to Kyle Loucks and Daniel Dye II for donating their time and expertise to judge this year's contest. This was the inaugural year for the NAFHA Meeting Photo Contest and I am excited to see this event grow bigger in the years to come, both in photo submissions and prizes.

Best Regards,

-Don Filipiak
