2010 Contest Winners

The Triangle in Focus

Winners of our annual photo competition


Based on the photos we’ve been judging for the past few months, many Triangle women capture their world through picture-perfect imagery. And lucky us — they’ve chosen to share their vision. The dazzling submissions are proof positive that technical quality, clarity and composition can exist side-by-side with creativity. The result? We get the opportunity to see through their unique lenses.
