Winners of the 38th Annual Harvestfest Photography Competition

Judy Hardiman Competition 2 Comments

Last evening, Image Makers Photography Club in Truro, Nova Scotia held their 38th Annual Harvestfest Photography Competition.  Due to a last minute school closure, the usual meeting location had to be changed.  A special thank you goes out to the First Baptist Church in Truro for helping them with such short notice.  It was greatly appreciated.  

There were 87 entries in this year’s digital competition and they were judged based on four different criteria: Impact, Technical Quality, Content/Composition and Creativity.  

There were two judges on the panel which included George Klass and Lawrence Nicoll.  Originally, there were three judges.  Due to a family emergency, the third judge had to withdraw from judging.

There was a good turnout at last night’s presentation and the judges’ shared their comments along with their constructive criticism if any.

The prizes were generously donated by the following sponsors:

Below is a list of the winners in this year’s Harvestfest Photography Competition.

Congratulations to all the winners.  To see the winning images go to the gallery at the Imagemakers website.
