Amateur and professional photographers gathered April 5 for Elsah Museum’s 2014 annual photography exhibit, “Elsah: A Gem in our Midst.”

Judges included working professional photographer/artist and photography professor, Janice Nesser-Chu.

The first place prizes are purchase prices, meaning that the museum would purchase the photographs for $150, and artists would night at The Green Tree Inn. Runner-ups would be awarded certificates.

“Being able to present your art in front of an audience is overwhelming. I’ve entered a bunch of exhibits, even though I haven’t won first place, it was still a fun experience,” Art major Emily Prescott said.

The photographers retained all proceeds from sold work. Entering pieces offered a chance to gain experience and build a portfolio.

“Young photography students could learn the importance of preparing a deadline for submitting artwork,” L&C Professor Jeff Vaughn said.
