March Photo Contest Winner & Honorable Mentions

This month, we were happy to have Specialized Printed Products as a Fort Wayne photo contest sponsor. The guidelines? Fort Wayne photos tagged with #DasFort.

The prize? An oversized custom canvas print, 24 x 36 inches—a $150 value. 

Once again, we were honored and amazed by all your beautiful snapshots of the city. It was hard to pick just one winner, so we decided to include a post with all of our favorites.

The winner of the March contest is another small business, @TheTinyShedFW. We just love the sunlight through the trees, the size of the little shed, and—especially on this snowy Saint Patrick's Day—the bright green grass.

First runner-up, although not a photo of the actual city, was taken in Fort Wayne by a previous contest winner, guest Instagram take-over professional, and #LightUpTheFort instigator, @MollieShutt. We are simply in love with her black balloon series: "Gerascophobia: The Fear of Growing Up."

Second runner-up is man about town, @BrettGauger. The lines, the mysteriousness, the shadows—there's still new views to be found in the Fort.

The rest are in no particular order, but all deserve some recognition.

Just when we thought spring was almost here (only 3 days away!), Fort Wayne was blessed with ... more snow. Beautifully captured by @EmilyKayRichardson.

Talk about vibrant colors and beautiful murals! @NativeOfTheFort's downtown shot is picture perfect.

Who doesn't enjoy a little long exposure? Night lights and the courthouse captured by @RyanBurson.

That bike riding shadow though! Perfectly timed capture by @JonathanWKaufman.

And, finally, what's a Fort Wayne photo contest without a skyline shot? Love the dreamy twilight hues by @EmKBrowning.
