Piedmont Environmental Council holds 11th annual photo contest

2019 PEC photo contest winner, “Full Moon Over Crozet,” by Cass Girvin of Charlottesville.

The Piedmont Environmental Council is seeking the public’s assistance in judging its 11th annual photo contest.

This year’s finalists were announced Nov. 9, and the community will have until Nov. 22 to vote for their favorite photo. The photos can be viewed and votes placed at pecva.org/photovote.

PEC staff and local photographers have chosen five finalists for categories.

“We were thrilled at the number of stunning images submitted to this year’s contest,” Hugh Kenny, PEC communications fellow and contest coordinator, said in a prepared statement. “They help us tell important stories and connect people with this beautiful place in new and exciting ways. Thank you to everyone who submitted a photo.”

All finalists will receive a one-year PEC membership and have their work featured in PEC’s upcoming online and/or print publications.

Winners in each adult category will receive a $75 gift certificate to a nearby restaurant participating in PEC’s “Buy Fresh, Buy Local” program. The Youth Category winner will receive their choice of a $75 iTunes, Google Play or Amazon gift card.
