Your Turn Photo Contest: Portfolio Battle Finalists

For the first time of the Your Turn Photo Contest we’ve asked our finalists to prepare a ten image portfolio to battle it out for the grand prize. The submissions have been received and it’s a heated debate who has the best images, so we’ve added a Reader’s Poll to get your input. TransWorld will announce a grand prize winner who will receive food, lodging, and a spot in the High Cascade's Photo Workshop, headed by TransWorld senior photographer Andy Wright. As well the Reader’s vote winner will receive a grab bag of product.

Here’s what went down at High Cascade’s Photo Workshop last summer:
