The “Picture This” Photo Contest, sponsored by Kennon Sign Shop, held its grand finale Thursday night at the the Sheridan Holiday Inn. Area photographers submitted shots for the contest in March, and after online voting through Kennon Sign Shop's Facebook page wrapped up, those who qualified in the top 50 saw their pictures in print on Thursday – a first time for many.
Kennon Sign Shop Owner, Ron Kensey, explains.
Large prints of photos that placed in the top five during the online competition were auctioned off throughout the night. The proceeds went directly to the Sheridan Senior Center, as executive director of the senior center, Carmen Rideout, explains.
Rideout was also one of the many lucky attendees who walked away with some high-quality prints of the winning photographs.
In the final day of last month's vote for the winners, Kensey says more than 100 unique visitors ranked their favorite photos.
