The Photo Contest
Mill Valley residents were asked to submit up to three photographs that captured the spirit of Mill Valley in the year 2000, photos that compare our town nowadays with the Mill Valley of the past 100 years. The photographs should have helped answer the questions: How have we changed?... How have our lifestyles, transportation, dress, and environment evolved? Entrants were encouraged to view the existing exhibit of old photographs at the Library for inspiration and comparison.
Prizes were awarded during the Mill Valley Library's Centennial Literary Festival on Sunday, May 28, and the winning entries were exhibited at the Library throughout the rest of the year. After the showing, all entries from the photography contest were archived in the Library's Lucretia Little History Room as a permanent record of Mill Valley in the year 2000.
The Winning Photos
Submitted photographs were divided into two categories: Color and Black & White. In each category, a First Prize and Second Prize were awarded, and an additional four photographs were given Honorable Mention. The Mill Valley Public Library wishes to congratulate the winners, and thanks all the participants in the contest, and the staff and volunteers who made it possible.
