Best In Show Print Competition winners from previous years
Every February for the past 18+ years, the Best in Show Print Competition has been presented by the Champaign County Camera Club. The competition is open to amateur photographers in the 11 counties in which The News-Gazette has home delivery. All competitors are eligible for the competition’s top prizes, except those entered in the Club category. In addition to the Champaign County Camera Club and The News-Gazette, there are ten sponsors who provide the ribbons and cash prizes.
The Urbana Park District assists with all phases of the event including submission collection, hanging the show, and communicating with participants. We also wish to acknowledge Lincoln Square for providing the space to display prints entered in the competition and allowing judges to present critiques at the end show. Larry Kanfer Gallery, Illini Studio, and Busey Bank provide funding for the top image awards. Trophy Time donates all place-winner ribbons; Framer’s Market, International Galleries, Art Coop, and Prairie Gardens also provide prizes. The generosity of all these businesses is important to making this such a popular public event. CCCC thanks them all for their generosity.
Enjoy the images - we have some very talented photographers in Champaign-Urbana!
