December 2016 Christmas in Hirschstetten Photo Contest: The Winners

Because ‘Tis The Season

The end of the year had crept up on us very quickly, and there’s a lot to look back on, and even more to be grateful for. April 2016 is when I started running Vienna Photo Walk, and we managed 12 photo walks in 9 months – thank you to everyone who came along to the walks, sent in their work, took part in the interviews, sent in their votes, sent in ideas, helped promote us, and generally expressed interest in VPW. It’s a wonderful creative outlet for many of us, and a chance to enjoy our hobby with other like-minded people, so thank you for your unwavering positivity and enthusiasm!

Photo Contest – the Results

For VPW, the year 2016 was definitely “Year of the Newbie”: every month, with only a couple of exceptions, the winners of our competitions were people who had joined VPW for the very first time, and this month was no exception. A big round of applause for the winner of VPW’s December 2016 Contest: Veronica Acosta! Her photos won – wait for it – First, Second, and Third Place!

Here they are, as voted by the members of VPW in our anonymously-posted photo contest:

A big thank you to all the members who joined us for the photo walk, those who entered our photo contest, and all the members of VPW who took the time to vote for their favourites!

Stay tuned for the in-depth interview with our winner, Argentinian hobby-photographer Veronica Acosta, and see you at our next photo walk!
