The City of Edmonds Arts Commission and the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation invite the public to attend the awards reception for the Essentially Edmonds Photo Contest this Thursday, Oct. 20, at the Edmonds Plaza Room, 650 Main St. from 6-7:30 p.m.
Photographers aged 18 and older were invited to enter up to three images of what they believe captures the “essence” of Edmonds, the places and people that make Edmonds a special community to live in and visit. Most frequently featured subject? The ferry on our lovely waterfront! Thirty-two individuals entered the 73 photographs.
Entries will be exhibited (via slide show) at a public reception during the Third Thursday ArtWalk. Photographs entered in the contest are all eligible to be featured on the new City of Edmonds website and all of the photos will be added to the Edmonds Museum photo archives. Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation sponsored awards include a $200 first-place award, $100 second place, and two $50 honorable mention swards.
