The winner of the 2019 Picture Wild Montana Photo Contest is “Waterfall Hike Near Seeley Lake” by Bri Sullivan

The theme of this year’s contest was “People and Public Lands.” In an effort to highlight the connection that Montanans feel to our public lands and waters, we asked participants to submit photos that featured friends, family, or themselves enjoying everything our public lands have to offer.
