Photo Contest 2008 Winners

In a click of a camera, they captured the emotions that color our lives. Photographers with the top entries in Carolina Woman’s annual competition didn’t take snapshots – they created art.
This year, our readers set a new record for the number of submissions and made it even tougher for the staff to focus in on a few champs. It was, literally, a photo finish. Here are the winners, and a link to the entries that made this such a tough decision! Congratulations and thanks to all our readers who submitted entries.
