Receiving a total of 69 submissions for the contest, commissioners selected 12 photographs by seven photographers to be hung in the courthouse.

The seven winning photographers included Somer Best, Logan Chernicky, John Martin, Michael Shaw, Chad Thomas, Kyle Yates, Brett Whitling, and Sasha Young.

“We would like to thank our winners for sharing pictures with the county, ” said Commissioner Ted Tharan, Wayne Brosius, and Ed Heasley.

“We hope everyone will take some time to stop and admire their talent and the beauty of Clarion County next time you are in the courthouse. We would also like to thank everyone who participated in the contest and made it a huge success. Due to this great turn out, we have decided to leave the photo contest open for anyone else who might have photos they would like to share with the county. While these ongoing submissions may not be hung in the courthouse, they have a chance to be hung in any of the other county buildings.”

Tharan also thanked Vicky Duncan, Intern Amber Smoyer, and Taylor Best for all the work they did on the photo contest.

PCNTV will also be filming the Clarion County Courthouse Friday, July 13, and the winning photos may be featured.  Tharan pointed out that the filming was taking place on Friday the 13th and was looking forward to showcasing the beauty and history of Clarion County. The completed television program is scheduled to air at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, September 13.
