In the People's Choice Award, a 2nd place award was given since there was only a one-vote difference.

There were a total of 106 entries submitted by 41 photographers. About 85 percent are residents of Cottonwood Heights, and 88 percent are amateurs. We are so appreciative of both the quantity and quality of entries.

Thank to everyone for participating!
