Whidbey Telecom recently announced that Point Roberts’ Valerie Mayer won the 2017-2018 Directory Cover Art Competition.

Mayer’s piece, an original watercolor named “A Day at the Beach,” will appear on the directory cover that will be published in November. The competition’s judging panel was led by Whidbey Telecom Chairperson Marion Henny and co-CEO Julia Henny. Two independent members of the art community, Sandy Rubini and this past year’s cover artist, Greg Thomas, also participated as judges.

Mayer will receive $500 for her work, while her painting will be featured on the cover of 15,000 directories to be distributed throughout South Whidbey, Hat Island and Point Roberts.

“We want to extend our appreciation to all the artists and photographers who submitted their work for consideration in this year’s competition,” Julia Henny said. “The quality of work submitted was amazing and it’s always a challenge to narrow down the entries to a single piece. We’re very fortunate to be surrounded by such a talented and creative community of artists.”
