After months of keeping it a secret, we’re finally ready to announce the winners of our 2016 Photo Contest.
In total, over 200 photos were entered entailing a diversity of plants, animals, mushrooms, scenes, and landscapes that truly highlighted Lambton County. It was a difficult judging process with many excellent entries. The panel of judges were from the Sarnia Photographic Club, the Petrolia Camera Club and Lambton Wildlife. Judging was aided by several other members of the Sarnia Photographic Club who made the process much more efficient with the use of a scoring machine and volunteering their time and effort.
One of the goals of the contest was to encourage the citizens of Lambton County to enjoy the outdoors and share their experiences through the medium of photography. By sharing these experiences we bring awareness to our area’s unique natural heritage. After going through all the photos, we felt like we succeeded!
The most rewarding part of the contest was that it was all captured by YOU! YOU explored the natural areas. YOU braved and/or basked in the elements. YOU took the time to capture special moments that can be shared. We THANK YOU for that.
The winners were announced and awarded their prizes at the “Members Photofest” event on January 30th. At the event, they had the opportunity to share any comments or stories behind their photo and answer any questions. It served as the perfect celebratory cap to Lambton Wildlife’s 50th Anniversary.
Keep on exploring and taking wonderful pictures!
The winners for each category are:
