April 30, 2012

Bristol Tennessee’s Paper Windows judges has announced the winners of the Paper Windows photo contest Session 1, “Spring-Nature’s Green Light.” Over fifty photographs were submitted for the community contest showcasing what spring means to each photographer. Photos of flowers, wildlife, families, parks and the Bristol Motor Speedway were received. Judging was not a simple task given the many photos. The top three photographs are: First place was awarded to ”Cardinal, the Flame Bird” by Wallace Moura, Second Place was awarded to “Conjunction at Steele Creek” by Greg Booher, Third Place was awarded to “Honey Bee – Tiny Treasure” by Denise Beverly.

Paper Windows: A Photographic Vision of Bristol is a year-long community photo contest in which photographers submit photos of Bristol, TN during twelve sessions depicting a certain theme. Everyone is encouraged to enter. Entries will only be accepted in digital format and must be e-mailed to paperwindows@bristoltn.org by the last day of each session.
Judging is conducted by 4 judges with backgrounds in the arts. Visitors to the city’s Facebook page may “like” their favorite photo during each session which will serve as the 5th judge. Rules, entry and release forms are available online at www.bristoltn.org by clicking on the Paper Windows tab on the home page. Parents or guardians must submit entries and release forms for entrants younger than 18 years.

The second session, “Bristol’s Hometown Heroes” has already begun and will end on May 21, 2012 with those winners being announced five business days following the last day of the session.
