OHNY Weekend Photo Competition

Open House New York and Wikimedia NYC partnered during the 15th Anniversary Open House New York Weekend to present the 2017 Wikipedia at OHNY Weekend Photo Competition. A festival favorite, the competition invites budding and experienced photographers to submit their best OHNY Weekend photos on Wikimedia Commons. More than 1,100 photos were submitted to the 2017 competition photos and are now part of the largest online repositories of public domain images in the world.

Submissions were judged by a panel of Open House New York volunteer photographers–a group of expert Open House New Yorkers who volunteer their time and photography expertise to help document all year-round programs and OHNY Weekend. Judges included New York photographers David Mark EricksonBen HelmerNicolas Lemery NantelBella MuccariJuliana Sohn, and Julia Xiao

Photo submissions were grouped into three categories–Details, Exteriors, and Interiors–and winners were selected in each category. Based on the number of votes, one category winner received distinction as the Grand Prize Winner and additional photos were recognized as Honorable Mentions. Winners are awarded $100 gift certificates for New York City Photo Safari, and the Grand Prize Winner also receives an Insta360–a clip-on that transforms the user’s phone into a VR camera that records 360-degree high-resolution 3K video–courtesy of New York City Photo Safari. 

Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all who participated!
