Post Date:02/05/2020 9:15 AM

The results are in! On Tuesday evening (February 4), the 12th Annual Life in Louisville Photography Contest award winners were announced in City Hall. The contest, which started back in 2007, aims to preserve images and reminders of Louisville for this and future generations. Submissions were received from students, amateur photographers, professional photographers, residents, and visitors.

Richard Carande won the Grand Prize with his unique black and white photograph of Front Street while Anna Craze was awarded the Student Photography Award for her ‘Morning Bike Ride’. The People’s Choice Award, voted on by visitors to the Recreation & Senior Center, went to Karen Kralios for ‘Sunset Prowl’.

During the jury process, entries were separated into six major categories:  Animals, Downtown, Landscape, People, Sunrise/Sunset, and Iconic Images of 2019.

Commenting on the entries, Jay Keany, contest judge and professional photographer, said:

“We always receive a fantastic selection of photographs through the Life in Louisville contest and this year was no exception. Our vibrant city and beautiful parks and open space are full of rich material for local photographers and it is always a pleasure to see unique and fresh perspectives. My fellow judges and I would like to thank everyone who took the time to enter the contest.”

The photos, which chronicle events and daily life in Louisville, Colorado in 2019, will be added to the City’s archives through the Historical Museum. The finalists’ photos are currently on display in the lobby of the Recreation & Senior Center (900 Via Appia Way) until February 21.

The City thanks the Life in Louisville contest judges and local photographers Jay Keany, Erin Cox, and Mike Oliver for their time and enthusiasm.
