The Great Tulip Fest Photo Contest

2011 Winners

1ST PLACE:
Matt Mill - Albany Tulip Festival
The above photo is our Grand Prize Winner for the 2011 Great Tulip Fest Photo Contest. There were plenty of adorable photos with kids to choose from, but this one just captivates you. From the way she is stuffing her face into the blooms, almost falling into them, reaching with her hands to pull it closer, so eager to smell the flower... right down to the patchwork dress that coordinates with the tulip pattern in matching colors... it's just perfect. What more can we say?

Congratulations to our first place winner: Matt Milless (and adorable photo subject Ava) who wins $150 in gift certificates to the Great Escape Lodge & Indoor Waterpark, a family fun attraction in Lake George, NY, along with an authentic 2011 Tulip Fest T-Shirt signed by all of Saturday's Main Stage Acts!

2ND PLACE:
Brittany Anna Ryan - Albany Tulip Festival
Above is our second place winner for the 2011 Great Tulip Fest Photo Contest. This photo is just striking. The soft-as-silk petals are so vibrant and so smooth, contrasted with crisp dew drops -- it steals your breath away.

Congrats to our second place winner: Brittany Anna Ryan who wins a $50 Gift Certificate to Elda's On Lark in Albany, NY and an authentic 2011 Tulip Fest T-Shirt signed by all of Saturday's Main Stage Acts!

3RD PLACE:
Emily LaPointe - Albany Tulip Festival
Above is the photo that won third place in our 2011 Great Tulip Fest Photo Contest. The angle and the bright colors gives you the illusion of looking through a kaleidoscope... only better (because they're real live tulips, rather than pieces of plastic). It's such a happy photo, and certainly worthy of winning third place.

Congratulations to our third place winner: Emily LaPointe who wins an authentic 2011 Tulip Fest T-Shirt signed by all of Saturday's Main Stage Acts!


Thank you to all who participated in the inaugural Albany.com Great Tulip Fest Photo Contest. If you didn't win this year, try again in 2012. All of the entries were so stunning, and each offered something unique, which made it very difficult to choose just 3 winners! View all photos that were submitted »
