Drum roll please. It gives me great pleasure to announce that Lito Ochotorena was voted the winner of Kingstonist’s Greatest Photo Contest, earning him the top prize of a $50 gift certificate to Camera Kingston. 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. 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 needs to showcase more often. In the weeks to come, we’ll be showing off more of our Flickr group’s recent additions via our recurring Friday Foto series. Otherwise, we’re already looking to host one or more photo contests next year. With that in mind, start snapping those pictures, and keep pouring your best into our community pool. Of course, I would be remiss if I did not thank our volunteer jury and our readers for taking care of the selection and voting respectively. As I’m sure many can attest, picking a winner was not an easy task.
