Photo Contest Winners Announced
The South Carolina State Library is pleased to announce the winners of the Third Annual National Library Week ‘Day in the Life of South Carolina Libraries’ photo contest .
During the days of April 12-18, South Carolina library staff members submitted a wide range of photographs of librarians working, teaching patrons, library events, and in some cases, just having fun doing what they love. Library staff members from all types of libraries were encouraged to submit photos that captured the essence of South Carolina libraries and librarianship. Winners will also be recognized on the South Carolina State Library’s web site and during the 2009 SCLA Annual Conference, October 28-30, 2009 at the Columbia Marriott. Judging criteria was based on composition, quality, subject, lighting, creativity, and the ability to capture the spirit of South Carolina libraries. A total of eight photos were selected winners in four main categories. Main categories were Best Overall, Librarians Helping Patrons, Librarians as Technology Gurus, and Most Humorous. Six honorable mentions were also selected. The State Library thanks everyone who participated in the contest!
