Three finalists from C&K's first annual People's Choice Photo Contest, presented by Body Glove Footwear will be showcased in a printed gallery at the awards show in Salt Lake City alongside seven other selected images from the magazine’s stable of professional contributors, which reflect the best in whitewater, canoeing and sea kayaking photography. Only one of these images will become 2013 Photo of the Year.
