Georgetown County was host to its second photo contest this fall. The contest sought photos with an autumn theme. The purpose of the contest was to engage the public and draw attention to the natural beauty, environmental diversity and recreational opportunities available in the county. The contest was open to photographers at all levels of experience. There were 17 entries received. A panel of judges comprised of county staff selected one overall winner, Austin Bond, pictured above with County administrator Sel Hemingway, right, for his photo of Wachesaw Plantation. A People’s Choice winner was selected by the public via voting on the county’s Facebook page. Jennifer Dwyer won that award for a photo of surfboards on Pawleys Island.
The photo selected by the judges will be put on display in one of the county facilities. Winning photographers received prizes including a certificate for Parks and Recreation programs.
