Paper Windows Sixth Session Winners Announced

September 24, 2012

The Paper Windows project’s sixth session titled “Bristol’s Streets” just closed with over 24 entries. The year-long project is one where local photographers can express their feelings about their community through the lens of a camera. “Well over 150 photographs have been entered in the contest. That is an amazing number, but it goes to show how much people love our city, its sights, its beauty and love photography itself,” said Terrie Talbert, Community Relations Director for the city. The first place winner‘s photograph was one of State Street during the spring titled “Spring Dawn on the Line”. The photo was taken by Matthew Mills.

The second place photograph was one of a city street reflecting a big smile and titled simply enough “Smile” this photograph was also shot by Matthew Mills.

A photograph titled “Layin’ on the Line” took 3rd place. This photo was of the brass markers placed in the middle of State Street reflecting the position of the state line. The photo was taken by Terri Campbell.

Anyone may participate in the photo contest. All rules for the project have been placed on the city’s website at www.bristoltn.org; click on the Paper Windows box under the “Home” tab. For additional information contact Lisa Beckner, Project Coordinator at
