2013 Photo Contest Winners Announced

The South Carolina State Library is pleased to announce the winners of the Seventh Annual National Library Week Day in the Life of South Carolina Libraries photo contest. During the week of April 8-14, South Carolina library staff members submitted a wide range of photographs of librarians working, assisting patrons, library events, and in some cases, just having fun doing what they love.

Library staff members from all types of libraries were encouraged to submit photos that captured the essence of South Carolina libraries and librarianship. Winners will also be recognized on the South Carolina State Library's website and during the 2013 South Carolina Library Association annual conference November 13-15 in Greenville, SC.

Judging criteria was based on composition, quality, subject, lighting, creativity, and the ability to capture the spirit of South Carolina libraries. A total of seven photos were selected winners along with two honorable mentions. Categories were Outreach/Bookmobile, Creative Programming, Technology, Books and Reading, People Helping People, and Best Overall.

The State Library congratulates the winners and thanks everyone who participated in the contest. All of the contest photos are available at the NLW Day in the Life of SC Libraries Flickr group.
