Community magazine’s summer photo contest, sponsored by Pictureline and Lumin Publishing, highlights the beauty of the region our clients and customers call home. 

The theme, “In My Own Backyard,” encouraged photographers of all skill levels to find and shoot the beauty in their own literal backyards or take some creative license and capture the incredible landscapes of the region.

  • Interpretation of the theme
  • Uniqueness of concept
  • Composition
  • Color, lighting, exposure and focus
  • Overall artistic impression

Each of the winning images captures the unique beauty of this region we are proud to call home. Original captions are included with the photographer’s name.
