The Museum af Photographic Arts, the Gallery Store, and the Reader would like to thank San Diego County photographers who submitted entries to this year's contest. A total of 682 entries was received from 243 entrants. All entries were judged by Wanda Hammerbeck, who selected 39 for exhibition. Fourteen of these are color images, 22 are black and white, and three are mixed media. The nine prize-winning entries are presented in this issue of the Reader. The complete exhibition can be seen at the San Diego Art Institute in Balboa Park October 30 through November 25. Special thanks to Chrome, Omnicolor, Photo Factory, Precision Lab, and U.S. Air.
