[ARCHIVED] Winning Photographs Selected in the "Nature in Our Backyard" Photography Contest

The City of Dublin recently held its third annual "Nature in Our Backyard" photography contest as part of Dublin Pride activities. The City received 159 beautiful photographs of natural landscapes and wildlife taken in Dublin between April 2020 and April 2021.  A panel of judges selected the top 10 photographs, which were then posted on the City's website for a community vote. The top four vote-getters were chosen for awards.

Photographer Rahul Guha Ray was named both the Grand Prize and First Place winner for the "Hummingbird" and "Northern Harrier" photographs.  Liz Crane won second place with a photo entitled, "Stagecoach Turkeys," while third place went to Monique Richardson for her photograph, "When I Look to the Sky."
