The ballots are counted and you — the reader— called the shots in this year’s Beacon photo contest!
Placing first with a whopping 140 votes was this early-morning shot of the sun glistening off the waves underneath the Ocean Beach Pier.
The photo was captured by Jarred Davidson. For his winning effort, Davidson will receive dinner for two at Donavan’s Steak & Chop House.
The second-place entry drew 90 votes for Jordan Buzzell’s shot of this lone canine on the beach, silhouetted by the setting sun as a surfer emerges from the ocean in the background.
The second-place honor will be good for dinner for two at the Coyote Cafe in Old Town.
Claiming the third and final spot in the Beacon photo contest was this cool, colorful shot of a wild parrot on a wire.
The shot was taken by Lisa Hoyer, who has earned tickets for free admission to museums and attractions in Balboa Park.
The results of the Beacon’s 2013 Amateur Photo Contest are in, and readers have made their choices!
During balloting at the June 22 Ocean Beach Street Fair and Chili Cook-Off Festival, hundreds of ballots were cast for 17 unique submissions.
Congratulations to the winners and to all who participated! Many thanks also to our loyal readers who voted in this year’s contest! We’ll do it again next year!
