It was a challenging task to select just a few images to be awarded prizes from so many high-quality entries. All participants were deeply inspired by Alaska’s natural beauty and outdoor recreation opportunities. The three AirRussia.US judges, including renowned landscape photographer John Arnsdorf, enjoyed the opportunity to review all the works. Every single entry made us want to spend more time exploring Alaska for ourselves. We look forward to sharing the photos with our subscribers.”
