a downtown dayton photo contest
Light Up Dayton was a huge success
With the new CareSource headquarters, the new logo atop the KeyBank Tower and other enhancements, the look of our downtown has changed. The City of Dayton, Dayton Daily News, and Downtown Dayton Partnership sponsored this contest to find new and interesting angles of downtown.
Hundreds of people participated in the contest, submitting around 400 photos to be judged. Congratulations to the winners:
- City of Lights - general skyline photos
- Rivers Run Through It - include the river(s)
- Dayton Originals - unique or unusual perspectives
- Street Life - people and places
- Best in Show
- Mayor's Choice Awards
- People's Choice Award
The Best in Show winners both received a $250 cash prize. The People's Choice winner, selected during Urban Nights on May 15, will receive a gift basket that includes Dayton Dragons tickets; gift certificates to Boston Stoker, Dublin Pub, Square One Salon & Spa, The Neon Movies, Uno Chicago Grill, and the Victoria Theatre's Michelob Ultra Cool Film Series; and certificates for free burritos for a year at Chipotle.
