The 7th Annual Lewes Tulip Festival Photography contest received 83 entries from 27 photographers in each of five subject categories (Tulip, Lewes Architecture, Quintessential Lewes (iconic Lewes image), Local Food and Lewes Landscape). The entries were judged by three professional photographers who are also members of the Lewes Chamber of Commerce –Dave Koster, Ginny Stominksi and Carolyn Watson. Each category has a first place, second place and third place ribbon award with the highest rated entry designated as the Grand Prize and receives a $100 prize as well as the ribbon.
The Lewes Chamber is one of six organizations that sponsors the festival which takes place on April 7-16. The others are the Lewes Historical Society, Lewes in Bloom, City of Lewes Parks & Recreation Commission, Historic Lewes Farmers Market and the Zwaanendael Museum.
All of the entries will be exhibited in a tent in Zwaanendael Park on Thursday, April 7, 8 & 9 from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. The photographers will receive their awards at a ceremony on April 9 at 2 p.m. in Zwaanendael Park.
