Spirit of Place - 2013 Contest Winners (enhanced ebook)
Maine Media Workshops + College is pleased to announce the winners of its Spirit of Place photo and video competition. More than 3,800 images and videos were submitted to 11 competition categories from image-makers around the world. Over $25,000 in prizes will be awarded in a special ceremony on June 7 at Maine Media Workshops + College, along with an exhibition in the Maine Media Gallery in Rockport Village.
In addition to landscape, seascape, people/culture, portfolio, and youth categories, the competition also included a category devoted to Midcoast Maine. Images and videos submitted for that prize will be donated to create an archive hosted by the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce and available to businesses and nonprofits in the community to promote the midcoast region.
The 11 contest winners are a diverse group of professional and recreational image-makers who hail from six different states, and as far away as Denmark, Germany, and Israel. “We are very pleased with the response to this contest from people all over the U.S. and many other countries around the world and impressed by the quality of images and videos selected by our jurors,” said Meg Weston, president of Maine Media Workshops + College.
Thanks to Mat Thorne of Seven Bay Design for his work in design both the print and eBook version of our contest results.
