The winners of James City County’s recent rural photography contest will be on display in Building E of the Government Center from now through Jan. 26.

The contest, which was sponsored by the James City County Rural Economic Development Committee, took place last summer and garnered more than 60 submissions.

The competition included 10 categories: farm and working lands; rivers, waterways and farm ponds; native flora and fauna; farm animals and wildlife; farm equipment; rural recreation; rural lifestyle; rural routes; ugly produce and tremendous timber.

A panel of five judges with experience in art, photography and rural lands selected one winner and one runner-up in each category.

The winning photographs were displayed earlier this year as part of a Williamsburg Fall Arts exhibit that partnered each image with a complementary glass sculpture and floral arrangement.

The winner and runner-up in each category will be on display from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
