November 10, 2016

The Aquarium’s 8th annual Photographers Night was held in October, and guests were invited to enjoy an evening of workshops, free equipment rentals, and demonstrations.

The special event gives photographers of all skill levels the opportunity to try new equipment and bring their arsenals from home to photograph the Aquarium’s animals and exhibits with the entire facility to themselves. They were also invited to take part in an exclusive photo contest with a range of prizes. Attendees were invited to submit their best photos of the night to our contest.

The results are as follows:

Grand Prize Winner: Eli Peer

First Runner-Up: Ali Zandi

Third Place: John Luciano

Honorable Mentions (in no particular order):

  • Francisco Romero
  • Denise Bennett
  • Matt Sersion
  • Mark Maes
  • Naomi Agosto
  • Victoria Linehan

Special thanks to Tuttle Cameras for their donations to the prize packages.
