DasFort's First Photo Contest: Winner & Honorable Mentions

Last week, we announced our first photo contest asking for views of Fort Wayne, and a DasFort hashtag, curious what people would show us.

We were looking for unique perspectives, beautiful photos, and even interpretations of what DasFort means to people.

From a wide range of photos, this vivid, inviting bridge brought us most into the photo, and the moment. The end of the bridge is intriguing, enigmatic, and if we weren't from Fort Wayne, we'd be curious as to where the bridge leads. (Hint: It's Foster Park)

Congratulations to the $50 grand-prize winner, Mollie (mollsterr__)!

Unfortunately, we could only pick one winner, although there were many stunning entries.

Here are a few honorable mentions that deserve another look:

  • Both of briananickless's submissions had beautiful captions that helped to set the scene. This photo reminded us of an old photo from the 70s—classic:
  • For some reason, this photo by hlwagner5 is making us thirsty:
  • Fogging, haunting, mysterious—love this shot by earthyerny:

Thank you to all who tagged #DasFort! Keep going! We're planning on having another photo contest here soon, stay tuned!
