Second Place: “Winter Play Under Lolo Pass” by Seth Orme of Missoula

The association encouraged participants to submit photos highlighting the connection Montanans feel to our public lands, waters, and wildlife while also showcasing the joy of exploring Montana’s wilderness areas, state parks, national forests, wilderness study areas, and other public lands. It sounds like that gave participants plenty of room to work with.

Third Place: “Tight Lines Under Dawn Mist Falls” by Bryan Dufresne of Hamilton

Since the contest began in 2009, thousands of amateur and professional photographers from across the state have participated in the Picture Wild Montana Photo Contest. This year, more than 160 photographers submitted 600 photos in total.

Prizes for this year’s first-place winner and runner-up include gear from Montana-based sponsors Mystery Ranch and Obōz Footwear. The third-place winner will receive swag from the Montana Wilderness Association, including apparel, a “Keep It Wild” water bottle, stickers, and more.
