We want to thank everyone who submitted their photos to the 2011 Oregon International Air Show Photo Contest. This year, there were more than 260 fantastic entries. Here are the winners and semi-finalists.
The photos were judged by a panel of 8 judges consisting of Air Show staff, board members and volunteers. There where two rounds of judging. In the first round, judges were given 3 votes for both "In The Air" and "On The Ground" categories to select the semi-finalists. In the second round, each judge was given 2 votes for "In The Air" and "On The Ground" and 1 vote for "Best Overall". All information that could identify the photographer was removed in both rounds to ensure contest integrity. In each round the decisions were difficult and in many cases it was a single vote that made the difference. Photos were judged on their creativity, energy, emotion and how they capture the essence of the Air Show.
Category winners will receive a framed 11"x17" of their image and 2 VIP tickets with parking to the 2012 Oregon International Air Show.
Runner's up will receive a framed 11"x17" of their image.
