The first-place poster, designed by Adam Cox and photographed by John Maxwell, both of the Division of Communications, and done with the assistance of the Division of Fish & Wildlife’s Morgan Sussman, promotes the Nongame Wildlife Fund, on.IN.gov/nongamefund, which protects Indiana’s endangered and nongame wildlife.

The second-place poster, also designed by Cox and done with the assistance of Sussman, and photographed by Maxwell and photo editor Frank Oliver, covers the subject of Living with Coyotes. Learn more about living with coyotes at on.IN.gov/coyotes.

The third place article told the story of Indiana’s covered bridges in the September/October 2019 issue of Outdoor Indiana magazine. It was written by Scott Roberts, photographed by Oliver and Maxwell, designed by Erin Hiatt, and edited by Marty Benson. Outdoor Indiana is the DNR’s bi-monthly full-color magazine.
