Winners of Photography Contest Announced



Twelve winners were selected out of over 250 photographs of local parks and recreation submitted in the 2019 ERIEBANK wall calendar contest. The calendar has become a customer favorite, and beginning in November, ERIEBANK associates will be providing these revered calendars to thousands of customers throughout northwestern Pennsylvania and Northeastern Ohio.
For the past two months, residents, from amateur to professional photographers, have been submitting their favorite photos depicting local parks and recreation to ERIEBANK’s online calendar contest at The deadline for submission was Sunday, August 5 and the difficult task of selecting twelve winners ensued.
The photograph awarded Best of Show will be featured on the front cover.  This cherished position was awarded to Isabelle Southard of Erie, PA.  Not only will her photo, entitled “A New Perspective”, be featured on the cover of the 2019 wall calendars, but will also be featured the month of April.
