Feature: Contest Winners
The results of our eighth Photo Contest
By John Bear
Hello there, photo nerds.
It’s been a crazy week, but we finally waded through all the entries to the Alibi’s eighth annual Photo Contest and selected the winners.
The same three-dude panel who brought you the results of the first annual Villanelle Contest returned to judge the pics. Alibi Copy Editor Sam Adams has a photography degree, so he was a no-brainer. Calendars Editor Adam Fox and I, John Bear the Arts and Literature editor, have no such qualifications, only massive amounts of opinion to spread around.
Thanks to everyone who entered. We have some fabulous prizes. Winners receive a $20 gift certificate to All Seasons Gardening, a $10 gift certificate to Bailey’s on the Beach and a $10 gift certificate to Pepper’s Ole’ Fashion BBQ. Plus, you know, bragging rights. Adam will be happy to hand them over at the front desk of the Alibi offices at 413 Central NW. He’s a real nice guy; just don’t look him directly in the eye, and keep your hands and feet away from his mouth.
Until next time, you keep pushing those buttons.
