Annapolis Royal Photo Contest & Exhibit – Until September 3!

For several years, the Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens has hosted an annual Photo Contest & Exhibit, encouraging visitors to share their best photos of the Gardens. This year, staff at the Gardens joined forces with the Annapolis Heritage Society and created an expanded contest, broadening the scope to include photos of heritage and the community as well. The results were very positive, with more than 100 photographs of the Gardens and the Town being entered. These photos are on display in the Historic Gardens Interpretive Centre (garden shots) and at the O’Dell House Museum (heritage & community shots). In addition to the contest entries, there are a number of exhibit-only entries, including many by staff members of the two organizations.

Photographs were judged by a visiting professional who generously gave of his time and expertise while he was in the area! Winners of the 14 categories were Beverley Hudson (4), Terry Murphy (4), Grant Lohnes (2), Jane DeWolfe (1), Matt Dill (1), Keith Doucet (1) and Cameron Wagner (1). The Grand Prize Winners in each division were Beverley Hudson (Historic Gardens division) and Terry Murphy (Annapolis Heritage Society divison).

Full Winners List.

People’s Choice voting is currently open for each division and will be awarded at the end of the Exhibit period.

Also of interest, at the O’Dell House Museum, is a display dedicated to “Project 365”, an effort by three local photographers in 2011 to take and share a community photo every single day of the year!

The Annapolis Royal Photo Exhibit is open at the Historic Gardens and the O’Dell House Museum until September 3. Have a look at your community through the eyes of more than a dozen photographers, and be sure to place your votes for People’s Choice awards in each division!

There are various categories, including specimens, views, people, etc and there is a special Junior Shutterbug category as well.
