Congratulations to Patrick Stuckart
of Ladson who won the $300 grand prize in our SC Small Town photo contest
with his beautiful photograph from Folly Beach
. He received 898 of 3,344 votes – nearly 27% of the total votes!
Patrick describes the winning scene: "While photographing the shrimp boats at Crosby's Seafood Market on the outskirts of Folly Beach, I noticed these two derelict boats in the marsh and quickly realized that their condition and position made for a much better photo."
Folly Beach calls itself "The Edge of America" and is a friendly and relaxed beach town. It has a lively downtown area and is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Locally owned and operated on Folly Beach, Crosby's Seafood has been in business for over 30 years. They sell whatever they're catching along with bait, fishing tackle, beer, and ice.
SCIWAY would also like to congratulate Madison Pierce
of Salem for winning second place with her picture of Lake Jocassee, and Sandy Dimke
of Beaufort for her photo from the small town of Miley.
|2nd Place Winner: Madison Pierce of Salem
||3rd Place Winner: Sandy Dimke of Beaufort
We also extend a big thank you to all of our participants for your wonderful submissions! In all, we received over 450 photos. This made selecting just six finalists very difficult to say the least! In fact, our inner-office poll became quite heated, and many of the photos each of us loved had to be excluded.
However, we are excited that we will be able to include so many of these submissions in the South Carolina Picture Project
. Please visit our gallery often to see these wonderful pictures.
