Uncovering Your Hidden Gems Photo Contest Winners

At PHW’s Annual Meeting yesterday, we finalized and announced the winners for the 2012 Uncovering Your Hidden Gems Photo Contest. At the end of the contest, we had almost 80 photos submitted. The PHW judging panel narrowed this to six top winners.

Sharing third place honors:
Michael Foreman, Hollingsworth Cemetery
William Henkel, Shutter Locks at 316 W. Boscawen St.
Karen Oleksa, Time and Place in Winchester, Old Court House Civil War Museum
Christy Oseth with two photos, Abrams Delight and First Presbyterian Church

In second place:
Jenny Brockwell with two photos, the dome of Handley Library and the spiral staircase descent at Handley Library

The top honors for PHW’s choice for an outstanding photo is:
Bill Jarvis, Tying History Together Through Architecture, a view of Christ Episcopal Church through the stained glass window at Parish Hall.

Judging was very difficult based on the quality and variety of entries we received, and to that end, the Old Town Development Board and PHW have pooled resources to provide honorable mention prizes for the other contestants. If you entered a photo, you can expect a small gift to arrive shortly.

Thank you again to all the entrants for sharing your vision of Winchester, and to our prize donors EBS Gallery, One Upon a Find, Total Image and Workingman’s Store, and Winchester Parking Authority for helping us reward the contestants. This was truly a special contest!
