Grand View Photography Students and Alums at the Iowa State Fair

August 7, 2018

2018 Grand View graduate Shannon Rodriguez continued her winning ways in the Iowa State Fair Photo Salon juried competition this year, placing two of her images in the exhibit and winning an Honorable Mention ribbon in the International Places and Landscapes class.

Alums Krister Strandskov and Joseph Provenzano each had two of their images chosen. Kelsey Oswald and Nicole Creason both had one photo make the show. Former adjunct Paula Maxheim had two photographs make it, one of which placed second in the Plants, Flowers and Trees class. 

1,018 photographers entered 3201 images this year, and just over a quarter of the images were picked for the exhibit. About 6% of the entries ribboned.
