Our Association concludes its 2014 Photo Contest by announcing the winners. We called for photos that express “Eastside Hillness.” All told, 32 images were taken by 14 neighbors.* Our prizes were offered by Molly Marie Photography at 1602 Hogeboom Avenue, Anybody’s Bikeshop at 411 Water Street, and The Local Store at 205 N. Dewey Street. We thank them for their generosity and ask you to consider supporting their businesses and/or acknowledging their help. Click the images for a closer look!

First Prize went to “Snow Din” by Heather Cook; judges liked the classic Eastside Hill image, how the composition was framed, the subtle colors, the quality of  light, the depth of space, and the strong presence of nature.

Second Prize was awarded to “5:11 PM” by Olive Ellringer; judges saw it as elegant, a strong composition, architecture with a strong Eastside Hill look, the light being magic.

Third Place went to “Winter Rocks” by Derrick Williams; judges liked its playfulness, the diverse textures, and the masterful dark sky next to the brilliant white/strong contrast.

Three Honorable Mentions were also picked out: “Quilts” by Michelle Pride, judged as a great capturing of a story; “Two Boxes” by Aaron Ellringer for its superb composition and amazing texture; and “The Chicken” by Sy Ellringer, singled out for its “edginess” factor (an Eastside Hill chicken!)

Thanks to all of you who were part of this defining of “Eastside Hillness”—our prize sponsors, Flynn School students, UW-EC students, and our other neighbors!

*Eighteen photos were also taken by 9 UW-EC students; these student photos were a class assignment by UW-EC Associate Art Professor Jyl Kelley, as part of a January Interim class.
