Congratulations to all of the winners of the 2011 Oregon Cultural Trust’s “This is Culture” Photo Contest!
Some stats from the Oregon Cultural Trust’s 2011 photo contest: 1,187 entries; 72 finalists; 3,280 online votes cast; and, finally, 5 category winners: Owen Carey (Photographers Grand Prize), Gary Norman (Culture Star V.I.P.), Athena Delene (Oregon Oddball), Lisa Bolden (My Life, My Culture), and Nicholas Manusos (Food Culture).
Three lucky cultural nonprofits came away winners, too: Owen Carey chose the Portland Actors Conservatory and Third Rail Repertory Theater as the recipients of $500 Trust grants in his name. Gary Norman directed his $1,000 prize to Theater Vertigo.
None of it would have been possible with the generous support of Whole Foods Market, Pro Photo Supply, and McMenamins.
