The grand prize selection went to a photo entitled "Addison Meadows", submitted by yours truly, Glenn Fay.
The grand prize winnings included $250 and a family membership to Shelburne Museum, which entitles us to unlimited visits for a year, along with discounts at the Museum Store and Café and other benefits. Shelburne Museum's collection includes 150,000 works of art, Americana and design. Located in Vermont's beautiful Champlain Valley, 45 acres of gardens and grounds surround the museum's 39 exhibition buildings, 25 of which are historic.
"Contestants definitely got into the spirit of the contest," said Stephan Jost, museum director. "With so many beautiful images of Vermont submitted, selecting the winners was no small task, but these three stood out, each in its own way."
The idea behind the contest was to be inspired by iconic landscape photographer Ansel Adams and contemporary great Edward Burtynsky. Both photographers' works are on view at the museum through Oct. 24 in the exhibit Constructed Landscapes
. The photo gallery of all the submissions can be viewed at the Burlington Free Press
It is an honor to have my photo be selected to represent "Views of Vermont" and it was inspiring for me to see to see the work of Ansel Adams and Edward Burtynsky, as well.
