This past year I participated in the Allegheny Center for the Arts monthly photo contest. The monthly winning photograph is featured in a full-color calendar for 2014. In addition, each monthly winner received a $25 prize. The photographer chosen as the winner of the cover photo won a grand prize of $50.
I purchased one of the calendars yesterday.
There were nine winners in the photo contest. Two of my submitted photographs won.
“Sunset After Storm” July 2014
“Fall Kinzua Dam” October 2014
Each photograph submitted was judged on the following criteria: (1) significance in terms of its relationship to Warren County, PA; (2) relevance to the month in which it was submitted; (3) photographic quality; and (4) creativity and genuineness/authenticity of the content.
My calendar is hanging in my home office, where I can enjoy all the beautiful photographs of Warren County each month. Congratulations to all the winners of this photo contest!
