Kingstonist’s Greatest Photo Contest: Winner

Koopyont, Kingstonist's Greatest Photo ContestDrum roll please. It gives me great pleasure to announce that Steve Koopman was voted the winner of Kingstonist’s Greatest Photo Contest (July 2011 edition), earning him the top prize of a $50 gift certificate to either Camera Kingston or Kingston Frameworks.  Additionally, the first runner up, Maria Offin, has earned herself one of our awesome yet impossible to find anywhere else, Kingstonist tees.  I would like to congratulate all of the finalists, and extend my sincere thanks to each and every photographer who uploaded work to our Flickr group. Once again, from the outset of this contest, I never would have imagined the number of new members our group was going to gain in such a short time, nor the outstanding quality of many of the photos submitted. Results such as these are undeniable indications that Kingston’s photographic scene is thriving, and something Kingstonist will continue to showcase via regular posts and future photo contests.  And of course I would be remiss if I did not thank our jury and voters for taking on the challenging role of nominating and selecting the cream of the crop.  Until next time, keep snapping and sharing your fantastic photos.
