contest awards.

by Kelly Bell, East Texas Review

The 30th annual Texas Bank and Trust Photography Exhibition and Awards Reception featured 589 entries submitted by 146 East Texas photographers, both amateur and professional. Commencing with a reception in the bank’s lobby on Whaley Street, the exhibition was a two-week extravaganza of beautiful graphic art. Winning photographers received cash prizes for their work in four categories: Fine Art, Human Interest, Landscape, and Nature. There were also the Chairman’s Award, the President’s Award, the Christmas Card Award, the OMNIClub Birthday Card Award, and Best of Show. This year there was also a new, special category–Spirit of Texas.

The bank will feature the winning photos in its 2013 Texas Bank and Trust Collector’s Calendar. By serving as judge, Eric Draper selected the photos for this calendar. Draper served as President George W. Bush’s special assistant and chief photographer. He believes all the photographers who entered the contest should have a lot to be proud of because of their work’s endless diversity and composition. He used such words as “cute, iconic, wonderful image, wonderfully technically executed, beautiful, very striking, very photographic, looks like a painting and eye-catching” to describe the entries.

Texas Bank and Trust Marketing Director Karen Partee expressed her excited enthusiasm for the event.

“We have returning and new photographers entering this year’s contest,” she said. “We had hoped for a great contest and crowd, and it turned out to exceed our expectations with 589 entrees compared to 500 the previous year. This is a great success.”

Lisa Richardson only took up photography six years ago, but earned the Chairman’s Award and Best of Show by taking both 1st and 2nd places in the Spirit of Texas category.

Dr. John Petty’s River Otter took first in the Nature category. He sees photography as an enjoyable challenge.

“I like to take on things where I can grow,” he said. “Besides, photography is stress-relieving.”

Internist Dr. Sreeman Jampana oversees a full-time medical practice, but still finds time for his photography. Despite limited time to work with his cameras, he won a third place and honorable mention in the Fine Arts and Nature categories.

Chrysalyn Barnes was delighted to win first place in the Human Interest category.

Texas Bank and Trust served punch and snacks to the photographers and their family and friends. Still, those in attendance found the gallery of photographs the main and most enjoyable attraction.

This pictorial tribute to life in East Texas will remain on display in the bank’s lobby at 300 East Whaley until Thursday, July 12. Voters may pick up ballots for the Peoples’ Choice Award until the exhibit closes. The winner will be announced Monday, July 16.
