2020 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Winners

We received 409 contest entries, and 10,925 votes were cast in the contest.

In chosing 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) Uniquness of the scene. Every year it seems that quality of the photographs gets better making selection of winners harder.
