2019 Photo Contest Winners & Finalists

This was another spectacular year for PEC’s Photo Contest! We’re happy the public decides who the winners are, because it would have been too difficult for us to choose. Thank you to everyone who submitted images and who voted!

So without further ado, here are the winning photos selected by popular vote in each of the four categories: Native Plants and Wildlife, Beautiful Landscapes & Streetscapes, Outdoor Recreation and Youth:

Entries to our photo contest help us build a gallery that enables PEC to tell the visual stories of the Virginia Piedmont. We are thankful for your participation and also for so many talented photographers in our region!

We also want to give a big shout out and thank you to our guest judge, local photographer Ken Garrett, who helped us select the finalists.
