Photo Contest Winners
The 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.
