Taking the First Place ribbon was fifth-year participant photographer Malorie Padron of Sulphur Springs with her entry highlighting the Hopkins County Veterans Memorial and America flag flown over Celebration Plaza. Padron said she usually uses her Canon EOS 35mm camera but this year she used her cell phone camera.
Second Place went to Mike Watson of Sulphur Springs with his black and white image of an old door hidden in the alley off Main Street. This was also Watson’s first time to walk in Sulphur Springs and his camera of choice was Canon 7D. He wins a monopod with phone holder donated by The Appliance Hospital.
Third Place ribbon went to a repeat winner Andy Pendleton of Dike with his carefully aligned photo of the arched window shadow on a vintage clock in the courtroom of the newly renovated City Hall. Pendleton used a digital Canon EOS for his entry. Pendleton was presented a $25 gift certificate to Muddy Jake’s Sports Grill and Pub.
