As they have for the past 20 years, local photographers this spring submitted the best that 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.
And now, the judges have made their decisions. 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: Bear Images Photographic Inc., University Art, the Palo Alto Art Center and Keeble & Shuchat.
More information, including all finalists' photos, judges' biographies and artists' statements, is available at www.paloaltoonline.com/photo_contest/photo2011.
