Fall 2010 Photo Contest Results

The Athens Convention & Visitors Bureau is pleased to announce that our CVB Staff Pick Award goes to to Debbie Hambley!

Debbie captured the wonderful tree-lined streets of downtown Athens in all their autumn glory. This great angle including flags and banners combines for a true "only in Athens" scene.

We are also happy to announce that YOUR top pick, the "Fan Favorite" Award, goes to... Iris Afonso!! Fans of all ages have loved the "We Let the Dawgs Out" statues!

Both winners will receive a $250.00 Athens prize package. A one night stay at Country Inn & Suites or Georgia Gameday Center, a $50.00 Classic Center gift certificate, a $50.00 Last Resort gift certificate, and a $25.00 Downtown Athens gift certificate.

A big thanks to everyone who entered and voted during our very first photo contest. Your photos all helped to make it a success.
