Trinity River Photo Contest Updates
Photos continue to impact winners, community alike
Dallas City Hall was fortunate to play host to the 2010 photo contest winners following the award ceremony with the Dallas City Council November 17. Contestants were able to see their works displayed in the Trinity River Corridor Project offices, where they were posted for judging. The winners enjoyed socializing and meandering through the halls lined with over 900 photo submissions.
The contest photos have proven to be the gifts that keep on giving to the Dallas community. The traveling exhibit for the 2009 photo contest concluded at the Trinity River Audubon Center to a welcoming reception December 16, where guests enjoyed the many pictures chosen for display. A slide show presentation showcased even more of the photos that illustrated the beauty of the Trinity River Corridor and the talent of local professional, amateur, and youth photographers. The exhibit remained on display at the Audubon Center for two weeks, giving many a final opportunity to view the fantastic photos.
The Official Best Of
From a community perspective, it is exciting to know that three Dallas area companies made the list this year and two are located in the shadows of the Dallas Levee System. Both the Hilton Anatole Hotel and Fuel City are close to the levees with quick access to the new Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge (opening 10/2011), Trammell Crow Park, the Standing Wave (opening spring 2011), and the Trinity.
Each year, the Official Best Of is anticipated. This year, it is proud to be featuring Texas’s top attractions on The Official Best Of Texas 2011.
