Winner Announced: Take a Picture of Something Neglected that You Wish Would Be Restored

GOOD community members picked a photo of a dead stingray as the winner of our Crowdsourced Picture Show About something neglected that should be restored.


Each month we ask the GOOD community to help us create a Picture Show. During November, we asked for pictures of something neglected that should be restored. It was interesting to see the varied ways submitters interpreted the theme of this Picture Show. We received images of deserted buildings, potholes, and lost loved ones. Just take a look in our Picture Show.

We’re happy to announce our winner, Bridget Davidson. In her image, a dead and shriveled stingray reminds her that "nobody wants to die alone in a strange place."


Bridget will receive a GOOD T-shirt and a free subscription (or gift subscription) to our magazine and her photo will be published in the next issue of GOOD.

Thanks again to everyone for submitting photos and voting on their favorites! Keep tuned for a new project coming soon.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."
