LIMA — Today, The Lima News announces the first winners of its 23rd annual Amateur Photo Competition.

This year, art teachers from area schools judged the competition: Kristin Lee, of Lima schools, Joseph Bonifas, retired from Shawnee High School, Gayle Mulder, of Shawnee schools, and Erin Johnson, of Elida High School.

There were 381 entries this year, just 23 fewer entries than last year, said Craig J. Orosz, photo editor for The Lima News.

The Best of Show winner was “Native American Boy,” by Donald Nuss, of St. Marys, from the candid kids category.

Judge Gayle Mulder shared the following comments from the judges as a group:

“As artists and art educators, we gathered together to judge an amateur photography exhibit with only the knowledge of previous winners work, as they are printed in the paper. And, although they are truly defined as amateurs, their work was anything but.

“The body of work is impressive and inspiring. When we looked back at the top selection as a whole group we all agreed, what an admirable collection … . We were all very impressed with the caliber, creativity and thought that came from behind the lens. We gave each entry significant consideration, and we hope you enjoy the selections we have made for your top pieces.”
