A panel of three judges, chosen by contest sponsor Computer Doctors of St Augustine, announced their selections in our Historic City News in Photos contest on October 4, 2013; but we withheld the name of the first place winner until they could be presented with their check.
The winning entry, “Sunrise at the St. Augustine Pier”, was submitted by 30-year-old Sara J LeClaire of St Augustine; and, last week, Larry Squire, representing Computer Doctors at 1260 North Ponce de Leon Boulevard, delivered the $100.00 grand prize.
“From a field of over 100 entries, forty-three finalists were submitted to the panel for a final selection,” Historic City News editor Michael Gold reported. “The contest sponsor said that all of the entries were worthy of recognition, and, together, I applaud the grand prize winner, gift certificate winners, and those others who submitted their photographs for judging.”
The second place winner, Judy Jackson, is awarded a $75 Gift Certificate for her entry, “Waiting for the big one on St Augustine Beach” and third place winner, Merrill Paul Roland, is awarded a $50 Gift Certificate for his entry, “Leo”.
Congratulations to our winners and our thanks for the opportunity to review such a wonderful field of creative and colorful entries.
