Texas State Parks 2014 Photo Contest Winners Announced!

There are many playful moments to be had in Texas Parks State Parks, but these three photos capture them best in the Texas State Parks Photo Contest:


Texas Parks and Wildlife contest judges selected these three photos the winners of over 1,300 entries based on composition, creative use of the theme “Picture Yourself in a Texas State Park,” and overall impression.

Winners received a HERO3+ Silver Edition GoPro© video camera from Whole Earth Provision Co., valued at $300 each. Winning photos will be featured in a future issue of Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine.

Thank you to all for sharing your playful moments in Texas State Parks and entering the photo contest. To catch a glimpse of all contest entries, visit
