North Berrien Photography Contest winners announced

Each year, the North Berrien Photography Contest invites Michigan photographers to submit images taken in the Bainbridge, Coloma, Hagar, and Watervliet areas of Berrien County. For the 2020 contest, a total of 28 beautiful submissions were entered for consideration. From these entries, three winners and three honorable mentions have been selected. These six photographs, along with seven others, were chosen by the Twin City Camera Club to compete in the first ever Virtual People’s Choice competition on the North Berrien Historical Museum’s Facebook page. The winning photographs of the 2020 Photo Contest are: “River Keeper” by Charlene Durfee in the senior division, “Farm Tower” by Lora Heinz in the adult division, and “Dodge Truck” by Ziah Wagoner in the youth division. These three photographs were determined by the judges of the contest to best represent and celebrate features of North Berrien’s distinctive character. Honorable mentions were awarded to Donna Lippert, Michelle Moffett, and Starla Wagoner. From August 24 to August 31, Museum Facebook followers voted for their favorite entry. “Brick School” by Donna Lippert took first place, accumulating 118 votes. Second place for People’s Choice went to “River Keeper” by Charlene Durfee with 101 votes. To view contest winners, you can visit the North Berrien Historical Museum website at northberrienhistory.org/photography-contest. The winning photographers were awarded a local restaurant gift certificate to The Friendly Tavern, Dairy Queen, or Easy Street Inn, courtesy of the Coloma–Watervliet Area Chamber of Commerce, a $25 gift card courtesy of the Twin City Camera Club, and a free one-year membership to the North Berrien Historical Society.
