The St. George Plantation’s fourth annual Photo Contest was a huge success! It was the biggest participation to date with 40 entries; all of which were good,-many that were outstanding!

We would like to thank everyone who submitted their breathtaking photos of the beautiful Apalachicola /Eastpoint /St. George Island area and to encourage others to join in on the 2014 “shutterbug” fun.

The fifth annual photo contest will be held in fall 2014.

We would like to extend our gratitude to our esteemed judges, Drew Ericson, curator of exhibits, design & fabrication for the Museum of Florida History, and Morgan Lewis, with the Division of Cultural Affairs. We thank you for your time and for your expertise in the judging of our artists’ exhibits. A daunting challenge.

And the winners are as follows: Chip Sanders took home the first place award with Drama at the Lighthouse; $150 prize. The second place award goes to Dragonfly Photography for Eastpoint Oyster Boat with Birds; $100 prize.

The third place spot was captured by David Morris with his entry of Casting before the Storm; $50 prize.

As in the past years; we let the locals choose their favorite photo for the People’s Choice Award. This year the $50 prize for the People’s Choice Award goes to Wild Dolphin by Ketaki Kini. Congratulations to all our winners!
