Twenty-one pieces of photography are hanging on the walls inside the recently opened Morse Coffee Company on First Street in Lake Oswego.
The specialty coffee shop showcases an art gallery, rotating local artists' work once a month. Now through the month of June, the city of Lake Oswego's 2020 photo contest winners will be on display.
Local photographers — amateur or professional — submitted images to the 2020 photo contest last September in any of the seven categories: "Life in Lake Oswego," "Places in Lake Oswego," "Plants and Wildlife in Lake Oswego," "Pets in Lake Oswego," "Digitally Altered Photographic Images," Youth" and "New Days, New Ways."
Photos were judged on quality, creativity and how well the image portrayed Lake Oswego. There was a first, second and third place winner in each category. More than 300 people submitted 770 photos and 21 winners were selected.
Photos at Morse Coffee Company were printed by SP&B Reprographics. To learn more about the 2021 photo contest, visit the city's website.
