Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2010 Opening Day Photo Contest, sponsored by Whitewater. We received hundreds of great submissions, and you voted on your favorites! Below are the 2010 winners in the Retrievers and Hunting categories. Please check back in fall 2011 for future contests and chances to win great prizes!
Hunting Photo Contest Winner: George Clifford
Fredericton, New Brunswick, resident George Clifford took this photo of a friend's 10-year-old yellow Labrador retriever and won first place in DU's Opening Day Hunting Photo Contest. George, who took the shot when he and Dodger were waiting for another wave of ducks to fly overhead while hunting in Prince Edward Island, said Dodger is a "seasoned veteran who won't leave a duck in the water and doesn't show his age at the blind." For his win, George will receive the DU Northwinds Jacket and Bib, courtesy of Whitewater.
Retriever Photo Contest Winner: Mark Lasnek
DU Iowa member Mark Lasnek's photo of his female black Labrador retriever won first prize in DU's Opening Day Retriever Photo Contest. Mark and his two-year-old, hard-charging Bailey will be receiving Whitewater's DU Windblocker® Softshell Jacket and the DU Windblocker® Softshell Pant.
Congratulations George and Mark!
