2015 Photo Contest Winners

Photo by Brigit Cotter Best in Show

The Photo Contest registrants brought fabulous photos to the exhibition and sale on Sunday, October 4 at the Botanical Center. Three judges had close to 150 entries to consider from 49 participants. First, second and third place prizes were awarded in each of three categories: Photo Club members, General Public, and Student (youths under 19 years old).  Hunt’s Photo and Video awarded a $500 gift certificate to the Best in Show, $100 gift certificates to the three first place winners, $50 gift certificates to the six second place winners, and $25 gift certificates to the nine third place winners. Additional prizes were awarded in 4 special categories: the best photo of an insect, the best photo in black and white, the best photo of a rose in the rose maze, and the best use of lighting. All photos were taken at the Botanical Center during the summer 2015 and the photographers did an amazing job reminding us of how beautiful the Botanical Center gardens are.
