Photo of the Year is an annual amateur photo contest 13 years in the making. Since its inception in 2002, the amateur photo contest has raised more than $100,000 for Outdoor Project partner Friends of Outdoor School, working to ensure Oregon school kids can attend at least one full week of outdoor school education. For many students, it's their first time sleeping in a cabin or spending time in the woods.

This year saw hundreds of amazing entries from all over the world. The 2014 Photo of the Year was chosen on Saturday by those who attended the Awards Gala at Base Camp Brewing Co. in Portland, Oregon. We extend our congratulations to Christopher Powell of Portland on having his photo of Joshua Tree named the Photo of the Year!

In the many years of Photo of the Year, this is the first time the overall winner is a youth participant, making Christopher's contest win that much more notable. In addition to the Photo of the Year, we had four category winners.                     

Professional: Ian Langenhuysen
 
Youth: Ashleigh Motteram
 
People in Nature: Reed Arce

Thank you to all of the participants, judges, sponsors and volunteers who make this event possible. We wish you all a year full of adventure and look forward to seeing all your images in next year's contest. Until then, safe travels and happy snapping!
