Two Township Residents Among County Photo Contest Winners

Township resident John Carroll won first place in the county photography contest with his picture, “Building and Tree Reflected.”

Two township residents were among the winners in the fourth annual “Show us Somerset County Through Your Camera Lens” photo contest for residents and county staff.

John Carroll won first place in the amateur architecture and urban design category, and Julie Daigle won second place in the community and events category.

Each category winner received a $50 honorarium.

Julie Daigle took second place with her photograph, “Field of Honor.”

The contest was sponsored by the Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders, in cooperation with the Somerset County Business Partnership.

“We want to thank everyone who entered this year’s contest,” Freeholder Director Patrick Scaglione said in a press release about the contest. “The Freeholder Board enjoys seeing the beauty of Somerset County through the eyes of residents and employees, and we are honored to post these amazing photos on our website.”

Judith Sedlak of Bernards was selected as the overall winner in the amateur category for her “Bee on Coneflower” entry. In the professional category, Somerset County employee Greg Backman was selected as the overall winner for his photo of a rider with her horse, taken at North Branch Park.

In addition to the overall winners, the panel of judges selected winners in each of four themes: Architecture & Urban Design, Arts & Culture, Community & Events and Natural Environment.
