A friend suggested I enter the Manitowoc Area Visitor & Convention Bureau's 10th Annual Digital Photo Contest in my hometown.  My photos won in three categories, 1st and 2nd place in the "Coastal-Nautical" category and 3rd in the "People Having Fun" category!  Winners were announced in the Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter on December 12, 2017 in the article Manitowoc visitor's bureau photo contest winners 'promote our stunning coastal location'.
