2011 Photo Contest

"Look Up, Look Around!" Winners

Thank you to everyone who submitted a photo (or series of photos) for our sixth annual photo contest!

There are 7 prizes: the grand prize winner receives a new digital camera; the 6 runners-up receive a $50 US Savings Bond.

The 7 winners, plus a select group of 6 additional photos will be featured in the 2012 Friendship State Bank calendar! Each winning photo will be featured in their own month, with the grand prize winner on the cover. Watch for the calendars in November.

Since the judging panel viewed all of the photos without knowing who the photographer was, and since two submissions per photographer were allowed, there are cases in which a young photographer may have won twice. This reflects the integrity of the judges and the contest, in that the goal was to select the Top 13 images for our annual calendar.

Congratulations to the following young photographers, you've certainly done a good job with your photos and interpreted the theme in numerous interesting ways.

The Top 7 - Grand Prize and Honorable Mentions - are shown below.

The runners up that will be featured in our calendar are: Kasey Baker (Rising Sun); Hailey Gerster (Bennington); Elisa Engstrom (Batesville); Kyle Emsweller (Batesville); Adam Hensley (Rising
Sun); and Megan Daugherty (Rising Sun).

[After the grand prize, the photos are in no particular order].
