2016 Photo Contest

The 2016 Murrysville Parks and Reserves Digital Photo Contest brought 185 entries, and the quality of entries was exceptional!  The entries were judged on their creativity or Wow factor, photographic quality and composition, and whether the photo shows off the beauty or unique character of Murrysville.  Congratulations to the contest winners!  

Thank you to our sponsors, to our Photomeister Doug Bauman; to Kaitlyn Sacherich who maintains the contest Facebook page; to Judges Tom Morton, Cary Bohl, Mia Kurlfink, Melanie Landsittel, and Dave Metzgar; and to everyone who helped with the contest or participated in it!
