Winners of Photography Contest Announced, to be Featured in FCBank 2015 Calendar

Bucyrus, OH – August 8, 2014

Twelve winning photographs were recently selected to be featured in the 2015 FCBank wall calendars. Local residents, whether beginner, amateur or professional photographers, were encouraged to submit one or two of their photos via the Bank’s web site throughout the past two months.
The 2015 FCBank calendar will feature local photos of "Landscapes".  Nearly one hundred entries were received, but one stood out as Judge’s Best of Show, which was submitted by Pete Saultz of Cardington.  His photo, entitled “Circle S Farms”, will be featured on the cover of the 2015 wall calendars, as well as inside the calendar for the month of August.  The other eleven months of the year will feature photographs submitted by Beverly Sipe, Heather Frey, and Marsha Gathright of Bucyrus, Arlen Miller of Sugarcreek, Sally Smith and Rick Binkowski of Columbus, Tessa Shetler of Loudonville, Angela Abrams of Marion, Patty Mowery of Upper Sandusky, and Jeff Kusner of Mount Vernon.
In addition, 24 photographs earned honorable mention and will be displayed on a special page of the calendar. Those photographs were submitted by Faith Achtermann, Rick Binkowski, Brandi Blagg, Tamara Boger, Jane Brause, Marge Brookes, Jessica Dobbins, Jason Elliott, Alivia Erow, Jackie Fruth, Pam Gray, Janet Hall, Sherry Hawk, Reed Klass, Anne Merriman-Abbott, Donna Rich, Lorie Roach, Wolfgang Sauer, Danielle Saultz, and Tessa Shetler.
FCBank thanks these, and all individuals who submitted an entry, and congratulates the photographers who will be featured in the inaugural FCBank wall calendar. 
This contest was initiated to provide an avenue to feature local talent and the communities in which the Bank serves through the eyes of residents as they’ve captured with their camera.  Calendars will be available to pick up at all FCBank branch locations after November 1, 2014.
