Corporate Games


Welcome to the 25th Annual Ventura Corporate Games: April 2 - May 10, 2014

Photo Contest results
Corporate Games thanks the 49 photographers from 20 companies who submitted 178 photos for this year's contest as well as judges Dianne Bennett and Silvia Huerta-Wetherbee for accepting the difficult task of selecting winners from so many great images. The vintage category attracted too few entries for awards so the judges replaced it with a new "Spirit" award selected from all categories. View all entries online and the winning entries  below. The winners are:
--Best Group Shot (1) Cheng Saechao (Nusil), (2) (photo right) Jonathan Neira (CSUCI), (3) Amanda Wilson (AeroVironment)
