Robert and Ann Wells of Los Alamos recently established a fund at the Los Alamos Arts Council whose purpose is to award a prize of $100 to the photographer who submitted the best photo of the quarter published as a Daily Postcard in the Los Alamos Daily Post.
“We have been impressed by the steady development of the Los Alamos Daily Post as a comprehensive community news source and have especially enjoyed the variety of photos submitted for publication by local citizens. The photo prize hopefully will motivate even more variety of photos and provide recognition for local photographers, which may be of particular benefit to those considering professional careers,” Robert Wells said.
The Wells asked that a panel of three photographers be chosen, one by Robert and Ann, one by the staff of the Los Alamos Daily Post and one by the Los Alamos Arts Council.
The photographers selected include:
T.K. Thompson; and
All three are well-known local photographers who have previously displayed their work at various venues in Los Alamos.
The committee recently met to jury the group of photographs published over the period of Oct. 1, 2016, to Dec. 31, 2016. The winning photograph is “Luminarias” submitted by Kelly Benner of White Rock.
Congratulations Kelly! We will shortly be rewarding you the prize of $100. The next contest will be looking at photos published in the first quarter of 2017.
