"Fall in the Fort" Photo Contest

This contest was sponsored by Chappell's Coral Grill. The winner received a $100 gift certificate.

Congratulations to @mamas.tribe for snapping the winning photograph for our "Fall in the Fort" photo contest. Open for interpretation, we were looking for someone to illustrate the city of Fort Wayne with an autumnal theme. Pumpkins, flowers, " I 💛 FW," and an adorable citizen fit the bill and made us smile.

We appreciate all the wonderful submissions, and it was hard to just choose one winner. The photos reveal a cozy little midwestern town full of golden light and fall foliage, from different perspectives, and many paths.

Take a look at how your fellow Fort Waynians see this city. 

Special thanks to runner-up @journeymei for all her submissions, it was hard to pick just one to include! Be sure to check out her page for some truly seasonal shots around town. 

Love taking walks after a long day of work downtown. 🍂🍁 #FortWayneAutumn #DasFort

Black and gold feature from @ourcountrybungalowlife. Perfect fall colors, and a cornfield in the back to boot!

This downtown view features the Botanical Conservatory and just the faintest hint of changing greenery from @bartlett_travis.

Since we started with a jack-o-lantern, we thought it'd only be fitting to end with one, and not just any one: The Great Fort Wayne Pumpkin from @brettgauger.
