Leslie Jean provided the following report from the final day of the contest. The day started at 9:00 with registration and setting up the prints for sale. Each contestant could bring prints to sell as well as sell their images that were entered in the contest. There were three judges working together to decide on the winners in three categories – general public, photography club members and students. While the judging was going on Mike Dooley gave his presentation “Exploring the Ocean State” to a packed room. After the presentation the awards where handed out. The winners from PSRI were Deb Page, Noreen Kerrigan and Phyllis Pascazio. Phyllis’s two photography students also won awards. The contest will be held again next year in May.
