The following photographers received awards in professional, amateur, and youth divisions:
First – Ron Lowery (Harrison); second – Carolyn Pardue (Sweetwater); and third – Jim Caldwell (Etowah).

Photos by all the talented photographers who entered the contest will be on view at the Museum Center through June 12. The photography contest was sponsored by CPQ Professional Imaging and GuestLine Tennessee.
The photo contest was held in conjunction with the museum’s current exhibit, “Wild River: Hollywood Comes to Bradley County.” The exhibit looks at how, 50 years ago, Elia Kazan and a Hollywood cast and crew came to Bradley County to film a love story based on the TVA and one family’s struggle with that agency. The exhibit is on view through July 3.
