The results are in! Great Lakes Forever and Anheuser-Busch announced the winners of their 2008 Great Lakes Photo Contest.
More than 85 amateur and professional photographers entered over 220 photographs in July. Six photos were selected for online voting in August. More than 550 people voted, selecting the winners in both the professional and amateur categories.
I wish to congratulate amateur photographer Brenda Jones and professional photographer Steven Huyser-Honig for their first place wins! Their Grand Prize winning photographs will be printed on educational beer coasters to be distributed to bars and restaurants throughout the Great Lakes region.
My photograph, titled Points of Light earned second place in the Pro category – thanks to your votes! Thank you everyone for participating and supporting the image in this fun competition.
