CKS / FaceBook Photo Contest…Winners, Runner-Ups and Great Photos

CKS / FaceBook Photo Contest

It seems like everyone has their own FaceBook page these days. Heck, even my high school math teacher has his own fractional share of cyber-real estate, and occasionally leaves messages for me on my "wall". Tag me bro! Here at CKS, we were trying to think of something cool to do with our little slice of the interweb, and decided that we would have a photo contest. Everyone likes a little kayak porn every once in while right? Whitewater kayaking is such a visually stunning sport, why not promote the beauty of the natural world with a $50 cash prize (store credit actually). We had 3 categories; Lifestyle, Women's paddling and Men's paddling. Here are the winning photos and the runner-ups. To make the voting process fair, I picked out the top 6-7 photos in each category and emailed them to our staff, and some friends. I did not mention who took the photo, or who was paddling in it. The votes were purely based on which picture looked the best.These are the results.

Have you ever had a tough time convincing your family that your black eye isn't that big of a deal? Or spent an hour explaining to your Tinder date the difference between "homeless" and "houseless," just so they would understand why you brought them back to a tent in the woods? 

If you answered yes to either of these things, hopefully this blog can help avoid some of those awkward conversations!
