2022 In Focus Photo Contest Winners Announced

2022 In Focus Photo Contest Winners Announced
Posted on 01/24/2023
The thirteenth annual New Hope In Focus Photo Contest concluded Monday night with the presentation of the winning photos at the New Hope City Council meeting. Nineteen photographers entered 31 photographs into the contest. The photographers either live, work, or attend school in New Hope, and entered photos were taken within the city.

A panel of judges from the community with extensive knowledge of photography and visual communication evaluated each photograph. Each judge awarded a score based on the subject matter, composition, technical quality, and overall impact. Judges selected winners in three main categories – people, places, and wildlife & nature. A special youth photography category recognizes a winning photo by a photographer under age 18.

Throughout November, the community had an opportunity to vote for their favorite photo for the People’s Choice category, online and in person.
