1st Alaska Chicks Photo Contest Winners

The task of selecting the winners of our 1st Alaska Chicks photo contest was a hard one for sure. We received more than 200 entries and difficultly narrowed the field to three winners and sixteen honorable mentions.

As we really had a great time doing this contest, we wanted to give at least a little prize for those who are being honorably mentioned: a $10 Alaska Chicks gift certificate for each. The gold medal winner is awarded with a $50 Alaska Chicks gift certificate, the silver medal winner gets a $25 Alaska Chicks gift certificate and the bronze medal winner takes home an Alaska Chicks headband of her choice.

AND THE WINNERS ARE...


Emily Henriques in first place for her outstanding photo of the Northern Lights. Look at her, she's like shouting "Freedom, here I am!". And the scenery is beautiful. That's why we picked her for number one.
