This summer, over 150 local photography enthusiasts submitted their work to the “A Focus on Home” Photography Contest, sponsored by Issaquah Highlands and the Issaquah Arts Commission. There were many gorgeous photos of our amazing community submitted by talented youth, teens, and adults. The judging committee, made up of staff and volunteers, had a difficult job choosing the best.
The winners of each category are featured here and will be displayed in the Blakely Hall gallery in the coming months, along with many other incredible photo submissions. Stay tuned for details on an opening reception when it’s safe for us to gather again. You may also see these and other photo submissions in upcoming issues of Connections, or on our website, or our social media.
A big “thank you” to everyone who submitted photos to our first community photography contest. Enjoy this peek at the winning photos.
Winner: Landscapes & Views (1 of 2)
We moved to the Highlands in the summer of 2020…[W]e fell in love with this community right away for the beautiful scenes and views it offers. There’s always something new to explore in the Highlands, and I love to capture them when I have the opportunity.
