Life In Louisville Photography Contest Winners
The annual Life in Louisville photography competition preserves images and reminders of Louisville for future generations by challenging student, amateur and professional photographers to submit photos that capture the essence of life in Louisville, Colorado. All images were taken between September 2015 and December 2016.
All entries are added into the City of Louisville’s photo collection. Images are archived and also utilized in City publications, giving exposure to local photographers and helping to promote and celebrate the City of Louisville.
Grand Prize was awarded to Louisville resident Joseph Falace for his photo, “Waiting for Santa.” Falace is an amateur photographer whose photo captures a magical image of Santa atop a fire truck and looking down Main Street during the 2016 Parade of Lights.
A special award went to Shadlee Friesen for her photo “Blue Parrot Carriage Ride.” The photo captures a horse-drawn carriage passing by the iconic Blue Parrot restaurant, which closed in early 2017 after 98 years in downtown Louisville.
In the Student category, first place went to 12th grade student Polly McGonigle for her photo “Mirror on the Mesa” taken at Louisville’s Davidson Mesa after a period of heavy rain and snow melt in March of 2016.
