Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest Winners: Worth a Thousand Words

2011 Photo Contest winners showcase compelling sights

by Karla Kane

As they have for the past 20 years, local photographers have submitted the best their portfolios have to offer to the annual Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest, co-sponsored by the City of Palo Alto’s Division of Arts and Sciences.

The award-winning photographers will be honored at a reception on Wednesday, June 8, at 5:30 p.m. in the Palo Alto City Hall lobby, 250 Hamilton Ave. An exhibition of the photos chosen as finalists will be shown in the lobby from June 8 to June 28.

The Weekly would like to thank the local sponsors of this year’s contest, including longtime supporter Bear Images Photographic Inc., which has been serving the needs of professional and amateur photographers for nearly 30 years, 2011 Tall Tree Award for Outstanding Business honoree and art-supply retailer University Art, the Palo Alto Art Center, which offers exhibits and art classes to the community, and California Avenue camera and photo-supply store Keeble & Shuchat.
