Pat Shingleton: Your Pic Could Win!
Each year Weatherwise Magazine conducts a photo contest. Contestants compete for a grand prize, a first prize, two second prizes, three thirds and honorable mentions. Entries range from atmospheric phenomena to seasonal images and drastic storms. Hopefully the mention of the contest will encourage local photographers to capture weather items and participate. Louisiana certainly has its share of interesting weather items and I haven't noted any winners from our area. Weatherwise website: www.weatherwise/org showcases the contest rules. In 2014, the Grand Prize went to Marcus Prazniak of El Cerrito, CA. Tony Bergantino of Laramie, Wyoming captured the first prize and Michael Garfield from Buffalo Grove, Indiana secured the second prize.
