Mexico Beach Photography Contest winners
In spite of all the turmoil that surrounds, somehow photographers capture this local paradise in all its glory.
Winners in the 2020 Mexico Beach Photography Contest were announced last week, with the top three photos selected in six categories.
Particularly striking was the number of winning photos from visitors or tourists, from Oklahoma to Iowa to Georgia.
“We would like to thank everyone who participated,” said Kimberly Shoaf, executive director of the Mexico Beach Community Development Council.
“The judges reviewed all entries and we are delighted to announce this year’s winners.
Shoaf said all photos were displayed for viewing at the Mexico Beach Welcome Center with the first-place photographs on display until Tuesday.
“All photographs will be released to the photographers after this date and no photographs will be mailed back,” Shoaf said, adding those photos not claimed by Oct. 1 will be released over to the Mexico Beach Welcome Center at its disposal.
“Again, thank you all for participating and entering,” Shoaf said. “We hope you will continue to capture Mexico Beach through your ‘eyes’ and enter next year.”!
