Congrats to Josh E., whose photo was voted the best of 2016 in our annual contest!
Josh wins a $1000 CLC gift card.
Each month we ask you to send us your best photos of Chesapeake Light Craft designs, and you've sent us hundreds of amazing shots.
Each month we ask you to vote on your favorites, and the top three (or sometimes four, in case of a tie) are put into the running for the overall annual winner.
Finally, during January, you voted for your favorite of the monthly winners. It was a hard-fought race this year with so many terrific images, but the votes are in and here are the results. (Click images to enlarge.)
First overall: Josh E's Mill Creek 16.5 on the Kettle River in northeast Washington
Second Place: Paul A.'s shot of his "three girls" in his Annapolis Wherry Tandem.
Third Place this year was Charles P.'s shot of his wife in her Chesapeake 17 on Price Lake on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
