On their website, they state the following:
Thank you to all who entered a photograph and voted in this contest. Unfortunately, during the course of reviewing and tabulating the votes, we noticed irregularities that left us unable to declare a winner of the contest. Because we were unable to fully validate all the votes cast, we could not, in good faith, affirm any single photograph as the winner.
A panel of Our State judges did review the photos and they selected some judge's choice photos to share with readers. Click here to view the photos which range from the beautiful NC mountains to the beaches up and down the NC coast.
