Voting in Champa Group’s digital photo contest is always a challenge, with many good entries to choose from.

This year was no exception. The contest featured two categories, flowers and general. There were two rounds of voting in each category, critics’ choice and peoples’ choice.

Champa Group added a new twist to this year’s contest by adding a digital video contest to the event. However, there were no entries in the video contest.

Rod Keiser said Champa Group will announce the category for next year’s video contest earlier as well as provide some education on how to take an edit video prior to next year’s contest.
