It is hard to believe that our 9th annual Pixel County Fair is over and winners notified. It seems like only yesterday that we were making plans for the very first one. We thank all who participated, whether you entered an image or voted on your favorites, thanks so much for taking the time and effort to make this fair a great one.
Harvest festivals and fairs have been a huge part of human civilization for thousands of years and our updated version is a part of a time-honored tradition. While we can't bring everything to one physical location, we can span the distances with our virtual celebration. We have entries from around the world and it shows the creativity and diversity of the population here in the 'garden'.
We invite you to enjoy this year's winning images and if you click on the image, it will take you to the contest category page where you can view the full-sized images and also see the runners-up.
We also want to let you know that we'll have another photo contest coming up in October. This one is our all-inclusive contest with many categories and the winners will be featured on our 2019 DG Calendar. Winners will receive one as part of their prize and you can also order copies through the DG Zazzle page.
We always like to end the season on a high note and our two photo contests give our membership a place to shine. We love seeing what you have been doing all year and hope to see you next time for the 10th County Fair.
Enjoy the photos and don't forget to click on the images to go to the contest pages so you can see the runners-up. They are also wonderful and deserve recognition as well!
