This year’s Best in Show Photographic Print Competition, which the park district runs with the Champaign County Camera Club, is now on display at Lincoln Square.
The 337 photos include gorgeous nature shots, intriguing portraits, compelling architecture photos, photos taken at Meadowbrook Park, and much more by local amateur photographers of all ages.
Community Program Manager Janet Soesbe commented, “It’s so exciting to see the photos people have taken in the past year. We have entries from Philo, at Allerton, Homer Lake and even Africa and Italy. We have so many creative people enjoying photography and I’m glad we have this opportunity for them to get their work recognized.”
This year’s competition has winners in 10 categories including a special commemorative category to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Wandell Sculpture Garden. These winners receive ribbons as well as cash prizes. The photos will be on display through noon on Sunday, February 12th. All are welcome to attend.
