2019 In Focus Contest Winners
Posted on 12/11/2019
The 10th-annual New Hope In Focus Photo Contest came to a conclusion on Monday night as the 2019 winning photos were presented at the City Council meeting.

Photographers who live, work or go to school in New Hope were asked to capture the beauty and uniqueness the city has to offer. 28 people stepped up to the challenge, submitting 49 pictures by the mid-August deadline.

Five judges from the community with extensive knowledge of photography and visual communication came together to evaluate each photograph. Each judge awarded a score based on the following criteria: subject matter, composition, clarity, lighting, effective artistic touch, difficulty of photo, and overall impact.

Also, community members were invited to vote for their favorite photograph in the “People’s Choice Award” category. The entered photographs where displayed across various New Hope locations and online, and tallied more than 200 total votes.

There were many deserving photos submitted to the contest, and thank you to all who participated!
