Winners Announced in Land+Link Photo Competition
The O. Winston Link Museum and Western Virginia Land Trust announced the winners of the 2011 Land+Link Photography Competition at an exhibit that opened Wednesday evening at the Link Museum. The first place photograph (above) was submitted by John Singleton of Roanoke, titled “Beyond the Fence – Blue Ridge Parkway.” Mike Diersing of Blacksburg took the photos that finished second and third. (See additional pictures on page 10.) The winners were chosen from a field of more than 160 entries. The theme of the competition was Preserving our Landscape, and entries were judged on their interpretation of the theme as well as technical aspects. The three overall winners and 17 finalists will be on exhibit later this month at the Link Museum and will also be included in a silent auction at the Western Virginia Land Trust’s Conservation Celebration at Braeloch in Roanoke County on Sept. 18.
