2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Winners

Here are the Cover Photo and Monthly winners in the 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. However, many photos not shown below will appear in the calendar. Last year we had about 50 photos in the calendar; this year will be similar. These extra photos will be chosen as we do the final graphical layout of the calendar before printing.

We received over 600 contest entries, and 14,788 votes were cast in the contest (the most ever).

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:
