2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Winners

Here are the Cover Photo and Monthly winners in the 2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. However, many photos not shown below will appear in the Calendar in "cameo roles" on the calendar pages. Those "cameo" photos will be choses as we complete the calendar graphic design process.

We received 645 contest entries (the most ever!), and 14,241 votes were cast in the contest.

In choosing the winners, we used the following criteria: 1) Voting results, 2) Image quality 3) Only one winning photo per photographer, 4) Region and scene diversity, and 5) Uniqueness of the scene. Every year, the quality of the photographs gets better making selection of winners harder.

We offer our sincere thanks to everyone who submitted a photo. We did not give the names of the photographers during the voting process, but here are the names of the people who contributed these great shots:
