DPG Announces Winners of December Monthly Photo Contest
By Joseph Tepper, January 17, 2012 @ 12:06 AM (EST)

DPG is very proud to announce the winners of our December monthly contest! The theme for last month’s contest was “Creative Editing” and the winner of $150 cash is Thomas Heckmann.

Thomas wow-ed the judges with his creative and humorous depiction of a school of fish-turned shark taking a bite at a diver. He also took home third place with his transformation of a Dugong into an underwater elephant.

First Place- Thomas Heckmann

Third Place- Thomas Heckmann

Stephen Holinski captured second place by turning a regular moray eel into a true honeycomb eel with a little creative editing.

As always, a big round of applause to our contest judges, without whom this contest couldn’t exist—DPG editors Matt Weiss and Joseph Tepper, along with multi award-winning photographers Steve de Neef, Keri Wilk, Mark Fuller and Jeff de Guzman.
