Post Date:09/07/2018 8:51 AM

We want to thank every one that participated in this year's TosaLife Photo Contest. We received 168 fantastic photos this year, and gathered a total of 1,050 votes for the popular vote category. 

Despite the high quality of the photos, there can be only a few winners in the end. The four winners of this years contest will receive a "swag bag" provided by Firefly Real Estate with gift cards to Tosa businesses, t-shirts, and a few other goodies.

Your winners are:

Popular Vote

KC Sattler - "Backyard Beauty"

2018 Photo Contest: Backyard Beauty

It takes patience and vision to grab a shot like this, and it seems that your peers agreed that this one was a keeper! With 94 votes, "Backyard Beauty" by KC Sattler stole the show as the winner of the popular vote.


Jason Williams - "North Ave Blur"

2018 Photo Contest: North Ave Blur

It's hard to look at this photo and not appreciate the deep color contrast between the deep blue of Rocket Baby Bakery and the red and white glow of the 69th Street Pedestrian Plaza which was opened earlier this year. Couple that with green tree canopy above and the blur of passing cars, and you've got one great photo. "North Ave Blur" by Jason Williams is the winner of our Cityscapes category.


Ann Rovito - "Morning Run"

2018 Photo Contest: Morning Run

Few urbanites can say they have a view like this on their morning run. The basin and its tendency to gather a deep fog lends itself to some great photo opportunities. Both pensive and bright, Ann Rovito's "Morning Run" took our breath away.

Community Engagement & Special Events

Gary Koch - "Leading the East Tosa Gran Prix

Last, but certainly not least, is a shot of one of the most beloved events in Tosa all year--the East Tosa Gran Prix. "Leading the East Tosa Gran Prix" by Gary Koch, the winner of the Community Engagement & Special Events category, captures not only the competitive spirit of the racers, but some of those beautiful bike lanes on North Ave and many of the spectators at this great event.

Thank you for participating!
