5th Annual Amateur Photography Contest Winners HERE!

On December 1, 2014 we celebrated a successful run of the 5h Annual Photo Contest. Photographers were in attendance as the Curator of Exhibits unveiled the winners of each category, as well as Best in Show and Reserve Grand Champion. This year's winners were based solely on the public's voting that took place during October and November.
