SAN LEANDRO, CA: The City of San Leandro is pleased to announce winning entries from the “Snap Your Best San Leandro” 2019 Photo Contest. As part of the program, participants were invited to submit photographs of San Leandro that celebrate life in three categories, including: Environment, Architecture, and Culture & Community. Photo submissions were due October 1, 2019.
Photo Contest categories were judged by three City of San Leandro commissions, as follows:
- Environment à Recreation & Human Services Commission
- Architecture à Arts Commission
- Culture & Community à Senior Commission
Following a review of the photos at each of the commission meetings held between October and November, the commissions selected the following photo finalists in each category:
- Environment: Sunset at San Leandro Marina by Danielle Bunker
- Architecture: Horatio’s Restaurant by Jojet Ortega
- Culture & Community: Coastal Clean Up San Leandro Marina by Jojet Ortega
“It’s exciting to see so many local residents taking part in our photo contest,” noted Mayor Pauline Russo Cutter. “Not only does it provide an opportunity for aspiring or established photographers to showcase their work, but it also provides a nice reminder of all the great amenities and scenic places we have right here in our own community. I wish to personally thank all those who took part in this fun program.”
Participants had the opportunity to submit up to 10 photographs for each category, and images were selected on the criteria of originality, composition and overall impact, artistic merit, photo quality and excellence, a compelling narrative, and the effectiveness of capturing the submission category or theme. The three winning finalists each will be awarded with a $100 gift card to San Leandro-based businesses and an opportunity to publicly showcase their photography.
