PHOTOS: Art Commission Honors Click Off Photography Contest Winners

The winning photographers were recognized during a reception at the Mill Valley Community Center, where their work will be on display throughout December as part of the Arts Commission's First Tuesday ArtWalk.

Mill Valley is a picturesque town, and more than 50 amateur and professional photographers drove that point home with the 14th annual Click Off Photography Contest.

On Nov. 1 participants drew one of five subject categories out of a hat, and spent the next two weeks viewing the city through the lens of a digital camera - including cell phones - and capturing a unique perspective that best represented their subject. 

With coaching from The Image Flow, which sponsored the event along with Strawberry Village Picture framers, each photographer submitted what they considered their best image.

A panel of judges chose first, second, third and honorable mention winners in each category. The recipients received gift certificates and were recognized Tuesday night at a reception at The Mill Valley Community Center during the Mill Valley Arts Commission's First Tuesday ArtWalk.

The winning photographs will be on display at the community center throughout the month of December.

Past winners can be found on Art Commission webpage.
