Rowlett Arts & Humanities Commission announces photography contest winners

ROWLETT, TX (Sept. 26, 2022) People, Places & Things served as both the contest theme as well as the categories for judging in the Rowlett Arts and Humanities recent photography contest.  To recognize the changing digital photography landscape, the Commission added a new category of Phone images.  There were many terrific entries in each category.

After the photographs were professionally judged, they were placed on display at the Rowlett Public Library. The winning photographers will also be recognized at the Oct. 11th City Council meeting.

As with past years’ contests, many of the photographs will also be seen in next year’s annual Arts & Humanities calendar.
