Winning photographs in TREES Inc. contest to be on display in January

Judging has been completed in the yearly photo contest organized by TREES Inc. and co-sponsored by the Tribune-Star and the Vigo County Public Library. This is the fourth-annual contest. The topic of fall foliage brought out the highest numbers of entries, and the quality of the photographs was exceptional.

The winning photographs in each of the three contest divisions — Professional, Adult Amateur and Youth — have been selected and will be on display in the Vigo County Public Library, Seventh and Poplar streets, after the holidays. The exhibit will open Jan. 5 and continue through the month. The contest winners include the first-, second- and third-place awards in each division along with honorable mention photographs singled out for special recognition. Additional outstanding photographs also have been chosen from the 275 contest entries for the January exhibit.

There were 30 entries in the Youth Division by young people ranging from third grade through high school. They were outstanding in both photographic technique and in composition. The judges selected 10 to be included in the exhibit.

The Youth Division winners are Emma Bilyeu with her photograph titled “A Touch of Sunshine,” first place; Emily Padgett with her entry “Structure of Pastel Leaves,” second place; and Abi Harden with her picture “God’s Golden Carpet,” third place.

Honorable Mention winners in the Youth Division were Laura Draper, Kaleb Hauptli, MacKenzi Gruenert, Emily Padgett and Ysabel Tio.

Two additional photographs considered among the best entries, by Elizabeth Biggs and a second entry by Laura Draper, also will be included in the exhibit.

The strongest competition was among the 230 entries in the Adult Amateur Division. Lauren Eggleston, a senior at St. Mary-of-the-Woods College, won first place with her photograph titled “Roots.” Rob Hasbrouck won second-place honors with his photograph “Memories”; and Diana Mathis won the third-place award with her photograph titled “Red Cloud.”
