Photographer wins Whidbey Telecom’s cover art contest

Whidbey Telecom has announced the winner of its 2018-19 Directory Cover Art Competition.

The directory, published in November, will feature “Island Bound,” an original photograph by Erin Meehan of Freeland.

The competition’s 2018 judging panel was headed by Whidbey Telecom Chairperson Marion F. Henny and Co-CEO Julia Henny.

“We want to extend our appreciation to the artists who submitted their work for consideration in this year’s competition,” Julia Henny said in a press release. “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.”

Meehan will receive $500 and her photograph will be featured on the cover of over 15,000 directories distributed throughout South Whidbey, Hat Island and Point Roberts.
