Fall Photo Contest
A "First Snowfall in Barrington" by Julie Fischer

PortsmouthNH.com announces the three winners of its Fall Photo Contest

The Sound’s sister site, PortsmouthNH.com, announced the winners of its Fall Photo Contest this morning, awarding three striking images that capture outdoor scenes on the Seacoast.

The winning photographs are “First Snowfall in Barrington” by Julie Fischer, “Heaven’s Gate — Maine Style, York” by Tom Olson, and “Dreamy Lighthouse, York” by Bennett Christiansen.

The winners were chosen by a panel of five judges that includes the website’s administrators and professional photographers. Winners each receive a gift certificate provided by the contest’s fall sponsor, The Dolphin Striker restaurant in Portsmouth.

PortsmouthNH.com’s photo contest runs quarterly, with the submission deadline landing on the final day of each season. Though the site accepts and publishes photos from around the Northeast, only photos taken on the Seacoast are eligible to win.

The winning photos for the fall of 2016 are below. All the fall submissions can be viewed here. To submit a photo for the winter contest, click here.
