2013 Global Photo Contest Winners
Kyla Kiefer - 1st Place
Tranquility in Orange location: Bangkok, Thailand
"This photo was taken in hopes to capture young monks out visiting the Grand Palace in Bangkok without them being aware of the camera. I took two shots with my camera at my waist and ended up with this turning out exceptionally well. This accidental shot sums up my time in Thailand: spirituality, exploration, tranquility, and embracing young spirit."
David McDonald - 2nd Place
Waiting for a Train location: near Krabi, Thailand
"Arguably one of my favorite moments in Thailand was every interaction with Thai monks -- and just being in their presence was awe-inspiring. I want to honor their life's devotion to helping others and this small picture of such "superheroes" doing ordinary activities inspires me so much."
Khanh Vu - 3rd Place
Breadth of Vietnam location: Gia Lai, Vietnam
"This photo was taken in Gia Lai, a province in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. No buildings, no traffic lanes, no hassle, no adults. It is a very different, still charming side of a developing country, Vietnam."
Melissa Fritz - Honorable Mention
A Mother Macaque location: Hua Hin, Thailand
"I really enjoy this photo because of the placement of the macaques on the statue. This was taken at "Monkey Mountain." a tourist attraction that offers great scenic vies of the city and allows you to observe the playful macaques that inhabit the grounds. for the visitor, this place is a great photo op, but for the macaques, this is their home and at times when they aren't intrigued and focused on the visitors, you can catch glimpses of precious moments int heir everyday lives."
