Edmonds Photomarathon

This year’s event wrapped up on September 20th with a Reception and Exhibit of more than 250 photos submitted in this year’s competition.  Winners were announced, and prizes were awarded, including the top prize of $500 to the Best of Show winner Grace Hiatt, for her photo of the theme “The Subject is Red”.  In comments by our judge, Janet Jensen, of Jensen Graphics, she noted that “the photographer was thinking outside the box here.  We have a RED head, holding a book with a RED title.  And, the young girl READ the book.”  Grace, the winner, also happens to be a 16 year old high school student! Once again the diverse makeup of all the winners shows that it is a challenging competition that can be won by professional or amateur photographers.  Creative thinking plays a role right along with photographic skill.

The list of winners is attached, along with the judge’s comments about the winning photos.
