And the Times Ag Fair contest winners are...
Islanders love the Ag Fair. That was evident in the 86 photos and eight video clips submitted to The Times Ag Fair contest, "Fair Warning."
The Times staff judged the entries. It was no easy task. The entries reflected a wide range of creativity and effort. Danielle Zerbonne, who headed the contest effort, had this to say about the winning photo and video.
"The oyster shucking photo stood out right away. The unique subject matter, the spray of oyster juice in the air, and the rippled Elvis face all came together into one striking photo that was unexpected and rather refreshing," said Ms. Zerbonne. "Pam's video moved along nicely and provided a variety of images that captured the Fair atmosphere."
How did we do? Take a look at the collection of photos and video and decide for yourself.
