This year, we launched the first HELIPHOTOS Sweepstakes. There were hundreds of photo submissions, thousands of votes, and tens of thousands of viewers. Honestly, we didn’t expect such a great turnout and it took us longer than expected to go through all the submissions to pick a winner.
After uploading all the files, our team poured over all the photos until we finally came up with the three winners. It wasn’t easy, there were a lot of great shots. Here are the winners of the 2014 HELIPHOTOS Sweepstakes sponsored by Guidance Aviation, Gibson and Barnes, & Rotorcraft Pro Magazine:
FIRST PLACE – HELIPHOTOS SWEEPSTAKES “WINNER”!
Rick Mann – “Skycrane drops water in Australia, 2013”.
SECOND PLACE – HELIPHOTOS SWEEPSTAKES
Joseph Bradshaw – “Firehawk coming into land at Silver City, NM after a day of bucket work on the Silver Fire”.
THIRD PLACE – HELIPHOTOS SWEEPSTAKES
Charly Mabry – “Hanging out the door of a Huey, I snapped this photo of our Cobra escort. As you look down the business end of the Cobra as she flies….you get a very different feeling from looking at her on the ground.”
First Place wins a GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition AND a custom engraved iPAD mini. The GoPro has been provided by Guidance Aviation while the iPad mini has been provided by Rotorcraft Pro Magazine! Well done Rick Mann!
Second Place wins a nomex flight suit and leather flight jacket provided by Gibson and Barnes! Congrats to Joseph Bradshaw.
