The winners will be announced Friday, Aug. 17, 2012. The winners will be selected by photographer Kevin M. Mills, who provided the entire collection of Pennsylvania photographs featured in the bank’s inaugural wall calendar in 2010. Mr. Mills will also select one ‘Best of Show’ to be featured on the front cover. He began taking photographs and processing film at age 12 and never quit. Upon graduation from high school, he began teaching photography classes and learned the intricacies under the tutelage of a professional photographer in Colorado. He currently teaches photography at the Huntingdon Vo-Tech School and prefers to photograph nature, still life, portraiture, architecture and weddings. CNB initiated this contest to provide an avenue to feature local talent and the communities in which the bank serves through the eyes of residents as they’ve captured with their camera. CNB is now accepting photo submissions on the website. Each entrant can submit up to two photos.
