Twelve finalists have each won a National Parks annual pass and are now in the running for the Grand Prize, a $500 gift card. Now, the public gets to assume the role of art critic and vote so a winner can be chosen.

About the Dry Tortugas
The Dry Tortugas National Park is a tiny cluster of secluded islands located 70 miles west of Key West, Florida. There, visitors can participate in an array of unforgettable experiences including snorkeling, camping, fishing, swimming, sunning on a pristine beach and exploring the historic Civil War Fort Jefferson. A top spot for bird watchers, the Dry Tortugas is a layover for many migrating birds that travel between South America and the USA and is an important part of the Great Florida Birding Trail.
