From the 110 photo entries it inspired, “SteelWooling at the Tang” by Nghia Luu ’14 won two prizes: its 530 “likes” made it the Facebook fan favorite, and its 97 votes earned it the Skidmore community prize. Matthew Cohen ’13 won the judges’ award: Cohen’s “Ode to Christopher Weigl” recreated the 2008 contest winner, “Ethereal,” by Chris Weigl ’11, who died in a bike accident in 2012. Cohen says, “He was my friend and photography mentor. I can never truly recreate any of his unbelievable work, but trying made me feel better.”
Honorable mentions went to Lauren Bosche '14 for "El Lago Rojo," Cooper Babcock '15 for "Hilltop Pond", and Kyle Wagman '14 for "Snowy Night." 
  • Hilltop Pond

The judges were Emma Dodge Hanson ’93 and Phil Scalia, both professional photographers, and Sarah Weitzman ’14, co-president of the Skidmore Photography Club and the 2012 CTM Photo Contest winner. 

All winners will receive a $250 cash prize. All photographs will become property of the Skidmore Communications Office and may be used on the web or in College publications in the future. A selected number of entries will be used in the new CTM Photo Gallery, to debut in January in Murray-Aikins Dining Hall.
