"iPalomino," a photo taken by Anthony Wilson of Los Palominos fans shooting smart phone pictures of the Tejano band during River Fest, was named the winner of the second SNAPS photography contest.
Carrie Gamboa’s “Billowing Argosy” of dancing street performers dressed as pirates placed second. Wilson also shot the third-place winner, “Bound,” of a young boy navigating an inflatable obstacle course.
Merit awards were presented to:
• “Pink Waterlily” by Steven Short.
• “Man of Still” by Gamboa.
• “Magical Fairies” by Sally Morales.
• “Taken” by Wilson.
The contest is coordinated by the City’s Public Art Commission and open to all photographers. It was judged by Edwin Cuenco, an Angelo State University assistant professor who teaches graphic design. All of the works focused on the River Fest celebration of the Concho River.
