BRAW held its first photo contest and it was a big hit. Over 50 photos were submitted. Thanks to Lori and Jim at the Camera Company in Madison for judging the winners. They commented they were very impressed with the entries. Both had never heard of BRAW before. The photo on the cover is the winner taken by Joan Eckhart.
On the back cover are the 2nd and 3rd place photos. Second place was taken by Steve Lang, third place by Mary KohlsBlanke.
BRAW President Patrick Ready commented "I find the winning photo interesting. A bluebird is in a marsh setting. Not where we typically think of seeing them. I recall."
Presented below are the are the winning participants and runners up. Braw certainly appreciated the efforts of all who submitted their photos. We learned a lot and gained ideas to further enhance our 2021 contest .
