This April we hosted 62 photographers from all over to compete in a photo competition. Picture Hocking Hills is the evolution of the former event Shoot the Hills that Friends of Hocking Hills put on for many years. We are so excited to have been passed the reigns to be able to bring a new photo competition to town. We had EXCELLENT photo entries and the judges had a tough job of picking out the winners. Our judges this year were Don Holycross, Christa Myers, and Elizabeth Nihiser. All of our judges are local photographers with many years of experience photographing in Hocking Hills.
