We chose the winning photos based on our specific criteria. The quality of the photo was important but it had to fit within the criteria guidelines. We really wanted to capture human dynamics within the landscape, and the photo had to be taken during Earth Week of 2022. These photos were excellent, but were not taken during earth week. Thank you so much to everyone who participated!
