#rowerswakeupearly Instagram contest
Thanks to everyone who submitted photos to our Instagram contest! We were blown away by the quality of the submissions from all over the world, and we struggled to narrow them down to a final 20, with our overall winner to become the RR Facebook cover photo for the month of April. Selection criteria included overall composition and image quality (resolution). And so, without further ado, the finalists are...

Congrats to all the finalists, and thank you so much for all your submissions! This was the toughest contest yet for us to judge—there are some very fine rowing photographers out there—and we feel lucky to get a chance to enjoy your work. Stay tuned for more Instagram contests in the near future, and in the meantime, we recommend taking a look through the hashtag #rowerswakeupearly—you'll see why we had such a difficult time narrowing it down!
