Two weeks ago we announced our fifteenth Greatest Photo Contest, by challenging local photographers to submit their best pictures of Kingston to our ever-growing Flickr group. Our panel of judges have been scouring the submissions and have completed the difficult task of narrowing them down to eight finalists. Now, we pass the final, most difficult task to you – choosing the ultimate winner of this, our 15th Greatest Photo Contest.
The scaled photos from the finalists are all linked to the originals on Flickr. We highly recommend you click through in order to see them all in high resolution. In no particular order, the finalists are:
My Hometown by Ian P Sempkowski (left). American Painted Lady Butterfly by newfoundlander61 (right).M1 by John Suart (left). Poppy Field by Ryan Warner (right).Sunflowers by Troy Johnson (left). Crawford Wharf by mkutz2011 (right).Near Joyceville Rd and Hwy #2 by Jim Vance (left). Early Morning Mist on T-K by Christopher Howitt (right).
Voting will be open until midnight on December 17th. The photographer with the most votes will win a $50 gift certificate to their choice of Kingston Frameworks or Camera Kingston. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, December 19th.
As always, Kingstonist appreciates the efforts of all those who’ve joined and continue to upload photos to our Flickr group. We regularly source photos from this group, so even if your submission wasn’t selected or doesn’t win the top prize, there’s a very good chance we’ll find a way to feature it in the future.
