The city of Seattle issued the following news release:
The Discovery Park Advisory Council will host a photo exhibit Saturday, Aug. 11, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Discovery Park Environmental Learning Center, 3801 W Government Way. The exhibit will feature photographs submitted for the park's third annual photography contest.
More than 50 photographers entered the second annual Discovery Park calendar photography contest, submitting a total of 155 stunning photographs of the park. All entries will be on display at the exhibit.
The 2008 calendar features the artwork of 15 photographers, including Alan Estep, Carl Clark, Richard Levine, Cindy Clark, Chris Templeton, Jay Boyton, Shellye Poster, Mark Whitesell, Carlos Cruz, Janis Clark, Michelle Mallory, David Pickar, Barb Lowe, Josh Ericksen, and Eve Simpson. Winning photographs will be unveiled at the Sept. 16 exhibit.
Judges Natalie Fobes, Thomas Hefferan and Kathi Goertzen had a difficult decision choosing just 15 photos.
Proceeds from the calendar benefit the Discovery Park Habitat Fund, which supports plant purchases at Discovery Park. Available for $10, the calendar will be for sale at the Discovery Park Environmental Learning Center.
This year is the third year of the calendar contest and exhibition. Both amateur and professional photographers entered the community-wide contest. The exhibition and contest is a community celebration of photography and Discovery Park.
