2021 Friends Of Huntley Meadows Park Photo Contest Held In Novemeber

Huntley Meadows Park is a vast expanse of wetlands in the middle of Mount Vernon so there are many opportunities for amateur and professional photographers to capture that scene to exemplify this 1,452-acre park in Fairfax County. Throughout the month of November, the Friends of Huntley Meadows Park invited those photographers to show off their work in the “2021 Friends of Huntley Meadows Park Photo Contest,” and the response was positive. This year they received 79 entries from 31 photographers.

According to The Connection Newspapers, "Most photographers enter in the “adult” category, but there were three youth entrants – including one in elementary school. The top photos went on display on Dec. 12 at the Norma Hoffman Visitor Center at Huntley Meadows Park. The five photo categories included birds, flora, insects, landscapes, mammals, and reptiles-amphibians. Of the top three photos, first place went to James Fatemi, 14, and the toad he called "King of his domain." This picture was the first place overall and first place for the high school entry. The second place was the "Summer Moon Silhouette," bird by Luis Fernando Pinzon, and the third place went to Tibor Molnar, who caught a praying mantis sunning himself in a picture he called "Is this my good side?" As per The Connection Newspapers, "The photography contest was judged by Chris Dyer, Laura Marshall, and Tyler Reber. Dyer has a background in art history, Marshall is a photographer (both have been judges previously), and Reber is a photographer and the immediate past winner of the contest. They judged the contest on impact, technique, composition, lighting, subject/center of interest, originality/creativity, and story/mood."
