2015 Photo Contest

Palm Coast's beautiful waterways and signature signage, happy children at play, lovely scenes from nature and amazing wildlife, and the Wings Over Flagler air show are among the winning images in the Palm Coast Find Your Florida 2015 Photography Contest.

Winners are being awarded gift certificates to local businesses – $200 for first place, $100 for second, $50 for third, and $10 for honorable mention. Winning photographs can be viewed on the City's website at www.palmcoastgov.com/photocontest and will be displayed at a City facility. Winning photographers will be recognized at the Aug. 4 Palm Coast City Council meeting.

The 2015 winners are:

First Place - "Our Children Reading in the City" (at the Palm Coast sign at Palm Coast Parkway and Old Kings Road) by Duane Van Horn

Second Place - "Shame in You" (bird photo) by James Cacciatore

Third Place - "Almost Heaven" (Palm Coast canal and residences) by Martha Garito

Honorable mentions:

  • "Our Great Horned Owls" by Duane Van Horn
  • "Family of Three" (deer) by Kacie Dragstedt

Winners were selected by the City of Palm Coast Brand Plus Team (branding and social media) in blind judging. There were 270 submissions that met the qualifications of the contest, from 76 photographers.

The City held a separate photo contest for employees and their immediate families, as they were not eligible to participate in the public contest. The winners of that contest were:

First Place - Lucy Nabico

Second Place - Lucy Nabico

Third Place - Larry Fitzgerald

Honorable Mentions:

  • "Quidditch Play" (quidditch tournament) by Heather Prestap
  • "Kayaker on the Intracoastal" by Larry Fitzgerald
  • "Quiet Canal" by Larry Fitzgerald
  • "Marina-a-Plenty" (boats at the marina) by Tom Hanson
  • "Dawn Watch at Spray Fields" (bird photo) by Tom Hanson
  • "A View of the Intracoastal Through the Trees" by Lucy Nabico

Photographs submitted for both contests will be used by the City for marketing, promotional and public relations purposes such as publications, videos and websites to promote the City of Palm Coast.

"The Find Your Florida Photo Contest is in its third year, and it has become a fun family tradition," said Cindi Lane, Palm Coast Communications & Marketing Manager. "We receive hundreds of excellent photos that showcase what makes Palm Coast special - the people, the natural environment and community spirit."

"Our goal with the annual contest is to build community and give photographers an opportunity to share their talents, while also providing the City new photos to use for promoting our beautiful community," Lane said. "Thank you to all the photographers who entered their work. We're already looking forward to next year's contest!"
