2017 Photo Contest Winners

We appreciate everyone who participated in our 3rd Annual ACCC Photo Contest for 2017.

We had 40 photographers submit 114 entries to the contest. Each photographer could submit up to 3 images. Choosing the winners posed a true challenge for this year’s judge, Mary Strother. Mary is a retired art professor from Normandale Community College where she taught black and white photography, drawing and art history for 34 years. She is our Visual Arts liaison for the ACCC.

Winners were announced in person at a workshop on November 7, 2017 at the Chanhassen Library. We’ve made a poster of the winners at the request of the Friends of the Victoria Library. They wanted to showcase our winners at the Victoria Library.
