Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest Winners
In full view
Twenty-two winners of the Weekly's 13th annual
do you capture the unsaid connection between a cat and a child,
two lovers or a mother and her son? For the 22 photographers
who won the Weekly's 13th annual Photo Contest, the answer is
through a lens. In a single click of the shutter, these novice
photographers captured a moment in time that speaks volumes.
Their images convey love, excitement, surprise, anticipation,
action and irony. For these shutterbugs, photography is a near
obsession cultivated in their youths by a parent, a book or simply
the beauty of daily life.
This year's winning photographs will be exhibited
at the Palo Alto Art Center on 1313 Newell Road from May
25 through June 9. The first-place winners received
$250 and a $100 gift certificate for University Art Center. The second-place
winners received $150 and a $100 voucher from UCSC Extension Art and Design
Department and the third-place winners received $100 and a $100
gift certificate for PhotoTime.
Winners in the youth category received $75 from University Art Center and an
art class at the Palo Alto Art Center for first place, a $50 gift certificate
from University Art Center for second-place winners and a $25 gift certificate
for third-place winners.
