City Pages photo contest winner, runners-up announced


We were overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of photos City Pages readers submitted for our first-ever photo contest. Wildlife, pets, people portraits, fancy foods — the photo subjects ran the gamut, and many were stunning.

Wintry scenes dominated this batch, and all of our favorites in this first contest take place outdoors. Here, we present the winner, along with three runners-up that finished tied for second place. 

Winner: Relux, fire and ice at Harris Machinery in Minneapolis

Runner-up: Patrick Dunn, eagles fighting in mid-air

Runner-up: Paul Irmiter, ice skating in a flurry


Runner-up: Casey Wittrock, iron pouring in Franconia

For the winning entry, Emespe wins a pair of tickets to the Cherub concert at First Avenue this Friday.

Thanks to everyone who participated, and check back tomorrow for details on next week's photo contest.
