Scenic Virginia’s annual Virginia Vistas Photo Contest

Scenic Virginia’s annual Virginia Vistas Photo Contest showcases the amazing depth and breadth of scenic beauty in the Commonwealth. Notes Executive Director Leighton Powell, “There is so much to love in our beautiful Virginia, and our annual photo contest reminds Virginians how lucky we are to call this place “home.”
Of course, here at The Piedmont Virginian we couldn’t agree more. While we love all of Virginia, we showcase only a portion: the northern Piedmont. So we’ve selected some of those photos that either won or received an honorable mention in the contest that are specifically in our editorial coverage area to share with our readers.
Returning as Photo Contest judges were Ben Greenberg, a professional photographer and author of Natural Virginia; Judy Watkins, Special Projects Manager at Virginia Tourism Corporation; Tom Saunders, a professional photographer with the Virginia Department of Transportation; and Eugenia Anderson-Ellis, a Scenic Virginia Advisory Board member and former president.
