Mill Valley Arts Commission announces winners of the 2012 Click Off Photography Contest.
Mill Valley, CA.--The Mill Valley Arts Commission announced on December 4, 2012 the winners of the 14th annual Click Off Photography Contest.
The Click Off is a digital photo contest sponsored by the Mill Valley Arts Commission, The Image Flow (a photographic learning center) and Strawberry Village Picture Framers. Each participant drew from a hat one of five subject categories. The categories highlighted Mill Valley’s unique characteristics and subsequently revealed each photographer’s perspective. Between November 1-12 contestants, from Mill Valley and elsewhere, took an image that they believed best represented their subject category and received coaching from The Image Flow photographers. Cameras of all kinds were used, including cell phones.
All ages and skill levels were represented among the fifty amateur and professional photographers. Those receiving awards for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and honorable mention in each category received gift certificates. Additionally, a Youth Award for those under 15 and a Best in Show award were given.
Award recipients were recognized at a reception held at 7:00 PM, Tuesday December 4, 2012 at the Mill Valley Community Center. Winning photos are on display in the lobby of the Community Center during the month of December 2012, as part of the Arts Commission’s monthly First Tuesday ArtWalk.
Art professionals selected the winning images. The jury included Anne Veh, independent curator and owner of Anne Veh Art Consulting, Mill Valley; Nancy Farese, founder of PhotoPhilanthrophy, Kentfield and Michael Rylander, founder of Rylander Design, Mill Valley. 2012 Click Off Photography Contest Winners
