Winner: Take a Picture of Someone You Admire

In May, we asked you, the GOOD community, to send us photos of someone you admire. See the winning picture inside.

We asked you, our regular GOOD readers, to send us a picture of someone you admire. The nominees included siblings and parents, students and teachers, artists and free spirits, and many others. Take a look at the submissions in our Picture Show.


After posting the Picture Show, we asked the community to vote. We’re happy to announce our winner, Lauren Modery, who sent in a photo of her 84-year-old grandmother who is still able to show Lauren up at the gym.

Lauren 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! Stay tuned for a new project coming soon.
