2011 HCC Photo Contest

The HCC family is challenging you to take your best shot at photography and submit your best photo(s) in the first ever HCC Photo Contest this fall.

HCC Family: Faculty, Staff, Students, Alumni and past or present Board Members.

Juror: Ed Kelley
Ed was born and raised in Waynesville, North Carolina. At 19, he acquired his first 35mm camera and took it everywhere. After a couple of degrees in forestry and biology (he is an HCC alumni 1976), Ed spent over a year living on Mt. Mitchell, where he served as naturalist and pursued his interest in photography. Although his interests range from wildlife to macro photography, capturing the moods of ever-changing light has always intrigued him.
