We're pleased to announce the winner of its 2016-2017 Directory Cover Art Competition. The new directory cover, to be published in November, will feature “Reflecting on Sunrise, Holmes Harbor,” an original photograph by Greg Thomas of Freeland.
The competition’s 2016 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, Windwalker Taibi of Raven Rocks Art Studio and last year’s cover artist, Govinda Rosling, also participated in judging the entries.
“The number of outstanding entries this year was staggering and it’s always difficult to try and select just a single piece. We’re so blessed to be surrounded by such a vibrant community of artists and photographers.”
“Greg’s artistic vision shines brightly in his photos and we’re excited to share his unique photography on this upcoming year’s directory cover. Mrs. Henny and I look forward to this process every year and we can’t wait for Greg’s photo to grace our cover.”
Greg 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 Whidbey Telecom’s our website for information on next year’s competition.
