See the winners of the #BatesFinals Instagram contest

The winners of this year’s finals-week Instagram contest have something in common, says contest judge Phyllis Graber Jensen, director of photography and video.

“The captions, even if just a word, work really well with the images, and vice versa. That cleverness makes it a full experience,” she adds. “Thanks to everyone who joined in.”

Here are the winners, each of whom receives a $25 gift certificate to the Den:
