Whidbey Telecom has announced the winner of its 2014-2015 Directory Cover Art Competition. The new directory cover, to be published in November, will feature “Flying High,” an original photograph by Tom Hanify of Clinton.
The competition’s 2014 judging panel was headed by Whidbey Telecom’s chairperson, Marion F. Henny, and co-CEO, Julia H. DeMartini. Two independent members of the art community, John Ursillo of Bearcub Studio and Judith Burns of Artworks Gallery, also participated in judging the entries.
“It continues to be such an inspiration and privilege to share this process with local artists and our community,” DeMartini said. “We are blessed to live in an area that is abundant in creativity and talent. Our new directory cover will represent a captivating artistic vision and help make our directory cover a beautiful work of art.”
“We also want to extend our appreciation to all the artists who submitted their work for consideration in our Directory Cover Art Competition and again encourage local artists to spread the word and participate in next year’s competition.”
Tom will receive $500 and his photograph will be featured on the cover of approximately 15,000 telephone directories distributed throughout South Whidbey, Hat Island, and Point Roberts, WA. Directories are usually mailed to Whidbey Telecom subscribers in early November. Watch our website for information on next year’s competition.
