A photo of the Beaver Bridge, taken by Holiday Islander Howard Wallace, will grace the cover of the Holiday Island Directory next year.
The photo was chosen by attendees at the Holiday Island Association of the Arts (HIAA) annual art show and competition Aug. 28-31.
Artwork for the cover and two inside spots is chosen by anonymous vote. Names of the artists and photographers are withheld from the submissions during voting.
Wallace's photo, titled "Golden Gate to Holiday Island," depicts the Beaver Bridge.
The submission receiving the next most votes went to "Oh Nutz!" a painting by Dee Landerman.
Third place went to "Holiday Island," a painting by Marilyn Brown.
This year's event included an arts fair on Friday and Saturday. According to HIAA member Carol Jacobson, over 535 people signed in for attendance.
"There were probably many more than that," she said. "Many families attended."
Jacobson said sales of the art on display were better this year than in the past and estimated anywhere from 10 to 15 pieces sold.
In addition to the juried contest winners and the anonymous phonebook votes, viewers also got to pick their favorites in the art contest under a "Viewer's Choice" ballot.
Top winners in that category went to "New Fly" by Jim Sexton, in the two-dimensional category; "Lazy Summer Day" by Jean Veri in the three-dimensional cateogry, and "Up Leatherwood Creek" by Dee Jay Swink in the photography category.
