2017 Monticello Photo Show

Results from the 14th Annual Monticello Photo Show, March 18-19, 2017

The 2017 Monticello Photo Show took place Saturday and Sunday, March 18 and 19, 2017, at River City Extreme in Monticello, on School Street west of Hwy 25. The photo show was free to attend, and everyone was welcome to attend and vote for their favorite photos. There were 267 attendees who voted for “Best in Show” in each of 12 categories. There were 135 photos entered by 48 photographers. It was another collection of EXCELLENT photos entered again this year.

The Monticello Camera Club wishes to extend a very sincere Thank You to River City Extreme for their support in putting on this event. Without them, we can easily say that the photo show might not have been possible. Their generosity and hospitality is greatly appreciated. With their fantastic banquet facilities, we were able to put on another great show. Show your appreciation by visiting River City Extreme and taking advantage of the great food and good times.
