2012 Springbok Image Contest

The 2012 Springbok Image Contest had over 1600 entries, more than double the number of entries from our first year. Because of the strength of the photos, Springbok made the unexpected decision to make all three winning images into puzzles. The Grand Prize Winner of the 2012 Springbok Image Contest was John Razza with, "Spicy, Hot!". Martha Boers' "Grandma's Cookies" and Jennifer Headlee's "Twist of Color" both tied for 2nd place.
