Photo Contest Winners

best of show2013The judging has been complete, the on-line voting tallied and the winners are being notified in the 25th anniversary Images of Haltom City Photo Contest. Begun in 1989, the contest had just 36 entries that first year. The contest has grown in popularity and each year typically attracts more than 250 entries involving 90 to 100 individual photographers.
To mark the 25th contest, organizers added a “People’s Choice” category in which entries were submitted on-line, and visitors to the city’s website could vote for their favorite photo.
For the other nine categories, organizers followed previous guidelines and held a judging of more than 300 printed and matted contest entries. The judges included Gary Blocker, Cos DeLeo and Stacy Leucker, each with a long history of involvement in the field of photography.

121/Haltom Rd. Beautification

Those entering Haltom City from Hwy. 121 and Haltom Rd. now receive a warm welcome thanks to a newly installed landscape project. Worth a total of $95,000, the project is the result of work done by Keep Haltom City Beautiful volunteers. It comes from an award earned by the group in 2004, sponsored by Keep Texas Beautiful and the Texas Department of Transportation.

To win the landscape award, KHCB, also known as the Haltom City Beautification Board, had to fulfill projects in seven categories, write an executive summary detailing what they had accomplished in each and put together a scrapbook as documentation of what had been done. Projects covered programs focused on environmental issues ranging from beautification and code enforcement to education and waste management.

Titled the Governor’s Community Achievement Award (GCAA), the prize is part of a highly competitive network of Keep Texas Beautiful affiliates which are divided into nine population categories. The awards increase according to population. A total of $2 million is annually at stake.

“We enter the GCAA each year,” Denise Ford, board chairman, said. “Not just because we hope to win the funds, but because we like to use the application as a guideline for improving the community,” She added.

This latest landscape project is the third one earned by KHCB since 1989. The other projects are located on Denton Highway near the NE Tarrant Chamber of Commerce and along Belknap Street and Baker Boulevard where Haltom City, North Richland Hills and Richland Hills come together.
