Another year, another crop of more than 2,600 amazing photos submitted to our annual photo contest. We winnowed the submissions down to a batch of semi-finalists in three categories: wildlife, landscape, and lifestyle. From there, the judges settled on their faves. See the winners!
To launch our yearlong celebration of 200 years of Maine statehood, we teamed up with Maine Public to hear from a few Mainers who can reflect upon half of that time.
