2011 Lowell Photography Contest
Lowell National Historical Park is pleased to announce the finalists for the 2011 Lowell Photography Contest. The public is invited to view the top 21 photographs at a reception at the Boott Cotton Mill Museum on Saturday, November 12th from 4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. The winners for the contest will be announced during the reception and then posted to this page. The 21 finalist photographs will remain on display at the Boott Cotton Mills Museum through the spring of 2012.
Contest participants from nine states and two foreign countries submitted 171 photographs documenting Lowell's incredible range of compelling visual subjects. Many local residents, both from Lowell and from more than a dozen surrounding towns, also participated in the contest. From Lowell's iconic mill architecture, to Lowell Folk Festival performers, to raging torrents along the Merrimack River, professional and amateur photographers alike managed to digitally capture a wide variety of Lowell's historic, cultural and natural resources.
Local professional photographers Sharon Lowe, Adrien Bisson, Laura Doran, John Wren, and Jack Holmes generously contributed their expertise in judging the contest entries. The judges evaluated each of the photographs based on the image's originality, technical execution, composition, and overall photographic technique.
Congratulations to the Finalists:
