Glovers Reef Sunrise, Belize
We are excited to unveil the twenty most popular photographs by vote entered into our Beauty of Belize Photo Contest .  
 
Out of these twenty entries, our photo-judging panel had the difficult decision to choose three photographs for the Grand Prize, 2nd and 3rd place in the Island Expeditions Choice Awards.
 
We were overwhelmed by the number and quality of the photographs submitted. In honor of all these amazing photos, the judging panel decided to award 2nd prize out of all the entries received.
 
Grant Zelych was awarded 2nd prize with his stunning photograph of “Glovers Reef Sunrise”.
