Medford Announces Calendar Contest Winners
The Medford Township Council is proud to announce that the following photographers will be featured in the 2010 Medford Township Municipal Calendar: Denise Bush, Al Celenza, Melissa Ciecierski, John Ciecierski, Patrick Connolly, Denise DiPace, Doreen Frake, Albert D. Horner, Richard Lewis, Richard H. Musgnug, Andrew Schipke and Bill Troy.
A long-standing effort by the Township Council and administration to provide residents with information on Township services, the annual Calendar is the result of dedicated work by Township employees from each Department who assemble and compile the information that is mailed to every address in Medford each December. In order to enhance the Calendar, the Township Council asked the Cultural Arts Commission to provide artwork featuring Medford artists and or scenery.
Thirty-five photographers submitted 91 photos to “A Call for Photography” contest sponsored by the Medford Cultural Arts Commission earlier this year. Each photographer submitted a maximum of three digital images taken in Medford Township within the last two years. Entries were then judged by two jurors. This year’s judges were Central Record’s esteemed photographer David Borrelli and photographer, Louis Dallara. Louis is a winner of the 2009 Calendar contest. Both judges are residents of Medford.
A reception at the Medford Arts Center (MAC) at 18 N Main St in Medford is being planned in honor of the winners. Members of the public will be invited.
The winning photographers have been invited to display their original calendar photographs at the MAC beginning October 16, 2009 through January 16, 2010. A continuous slide slow of all entries will be on view during the reception.
Two “top” photos out of the 14 winners will grace the front and back covers. These featured photographers will be announced at November’s reception.
In addition to honoring the winning photographers, the winners of the Medford Cultural Arts Commission’s recent Poetry Contest will also be honored.
