November 27, 2017

The Aquarium’s 9th 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: Jonathan Racasa

First Runner-Up: Lori Norman

Third Place: Joe Mikoli III

Honorable mentions:

  • Mark D. Brinegar
  • Rebecca Martens
  • Robin Young

Congratulations to our winners!
