2014 Photo Contest

"Nature's Wonders" Winners

Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry to our ninth annual photo contest!

This year, there are EIGHT prizes: both the Judge's Choice and the People's Choice grand prize winner receive an iPod Touch; the 6 Judge's Choice runners-up receive a $50 deposit into their Kid$ave! account.

The Top 13 photos, as chosen by our judging panel, will be featured in the 2015 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, along with our People's Choice winner.

The runners up that will be featured in our calendar are: Danielle Martini, Owen Davis, Nora Meyer, Ashley Laswell, Emma Davis, and Henry Meyer.

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