4th Annual Children’s Photo Contest Winners

04/24/2018

The photo contests organized by Life in the Finger Lakes magazine have always been open to everyone, with no entry fees. The contest is an opportunity for people who are passionate about photography and the Finger Lakes to showcase their talents. We have encouraged young photographers to show us what they can do as well. We present this year’s winners in this issue and we encourage all photographers to keep pursuing their dream of capturing the perfect Finger Lakes photo.
