The Alibi's Fourth Annual Photography Contest
By Steven Robert Allen
From beat-up cars to inappropriate costumes to what looked to us like possible criminal behavior (we've already notified the FBI), we saw a little bit of just about everything among this year's voluminous entries. To narrow it down, we sweated, we swore, we fought each other tooth and nail. Eventually, we reached some kind of consensus, however tense and grudging. The result is on these pages, with many more available for your viewing pleasure at alibi.com.
Our deepest gratitude goes to this year's sponsors. Camera & Darkroom (3225 Central NE, 255-1133) is one of the best places in our region of the country for new and used photo equipment along with expert advise on how to use it; The Outpost Performance Space (210 Yale SE, 268-0044) brings totally original top-tier programming to our city every week; Sushi Gen (5210 San Mateo NE, 830-0131) is the Northeast Heights' raw fish super-source; and the Calico Café (6855 Fourth Street NW, 890-9150) is one of the tastiest places to find a home-cooked meal in the North Valley.
Thanks also to this year's panel of judges, which in addition to myself included Christie Chisholm, Laura Marrich, Marisa Demarco, Tom Nayder, Paul Sessa, Jeff Drew and Jessica Cassyle Carr.
Congrats to all the victors and honorable mentions. To get your prizes, or to lodge a complaint because we didn't include a picture of your new kitten, please call me at 346-0660 ext. 251.
