Dozens of photographers along the Treasure Coast contributed their most captivating images of waterlilies for McKee’s fourth annual Waterlily Photo Contest.

More than 130 photo submissions featuring waterlilies photographed at McKee Botanical Garden in 2012 and 2013 were entered and classified into the contest’s three judged categories - Color, Black and White, and Manipulated. A first, second and third place winner was determined in each of the categories along with two honorable mentions. Additionally, visitors to McKee’s Waterlily Celebration on June 15 were able to vote for their “People’s Choice” favorite. Number of votes determined the first and second place winners.
