2018 Monticello Photo Show

Results from the 15th and FINAL Monticello Photo Show, March 17-18, 2018

The 2018 Monticello Photo Show took place Saturday and Sunday, March 17 and 18, 2018, at Best Western in Monticello, on Chelsea Road. The photo show was free to attend, and everyone was welcome to attend and vote for their favorite photos. There were 193 attendees who voted for “Best in Show” in each of 12 categories. There were 106 photos entered by 33 photographers. It was another collection of EXCELLENT photos entered again this year. Many attendees expressed their sadness that this was our last show.

The Monticello Camera Club wishes to extend a very sincere Thank You to Best Western 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 meeting facilities, we were able to put on a great show.
