The Photo Contest has come to an end! Thank you to all of the participants, judges, and supporters of this contest.
The winners are listed below, but first, a note from our judges:
 
We were all
impressed by the range of high-quality images submitted for the
contest.  Judging was difficult, so we tried to stick with the criteria
for this particular contest, which were:  “the image should capture a
soul, a moment, a place and a ministry.”  Virtually all of the images
submitted by our 29 finalists did a terrific job of capturing a “soul
and a place”.  So we looked for portfolios with a high percentage of
pictures that captured a “mission and a moment”.   We also appreciated
the technical quality and the variety of techniques used in the
portfolios we selected as winners.

Because
there were so many outstanding pictures, we also selected 15 Honorable
Mention pictures from among the portfolios of those who did not place
in the top 5.

Thanks for letting us judge this contest; we feel blessed to have had the chance to work with such talented photographers.”
 
The picture they liked the best out of all entries was of the child being tossed in the air by Jacob Maentz below. And the two photographers who got the most people’s choice votes were Natalie Montgomery and John Fracker. Congratulations to all our photographers for their excellent work! We are sending out $5000 in total prize money to the following:

  • Those are all wonderful pictures. Congratulations to everyone! Delightful to be able to see such story telling images. Thanks everyone.

  • Beautiful photographs – and congrats to the winners! Wonderful moments captured of God’s Kingdom come to earth …

  • Congratulations to Katie and the other winners! I used to go to Katie’s church in Boone, NC back when she was a wee lad and my wife & I followed her world race journey (as facebook friends) over the past year. All the photographs were stunning and very expressive. I agree that they’d make a very pleasing coffee table book.

  • praise God!!!
    and thank you, AIM, for the blessing you have been to kt over this past year, and the encouragement you have provided through this contest. her life and ministry have been greatly enriched by the Lord through the World Race and AIM. blessings to you all,
    pat rowland (katie’s mom =)

  • These are all wonderful pictures.
    May God bles You and all Aim Adventures Mission work.

  • You people are so f*cking FAKE, I can hardly stomach it.

    Self-righteous and egotistical, *you are nowhere near God* as you delude yourselves to think,
    just as the people posing on the ruins (#6) were clearly *nowhere near* the quake when it happened.

    Face reality:

    You’re not God’s favored.

    You’re just like everyone else
    because you’re selfish,
    and your pretending to be godly is akin to a drug addict “getting high.”

    The only difference being that the addict will probably more easily get into Heaven, because he didn’t turn God into an excuse for his own *Vanity.*

  • Bryan,

    May I ask why are you trolling? What do you have to back up that these people are fake? Do you know them?

    All I see is heavy trolling and empty claims. Bryan if you have nothing better to do than troll on other people’s forums, I suggest you find another means to voice your arrogant and pathetic comments.

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
