Each year photographers of all skill levels are invited to capture the beauty of Vernon Parish through their eyes. 12-year-old Macy Mawae won this year's $500 grand prize and People's Choice award for her snapshot of a serene fall morning over a lake.
"I didn't expect to win," said Mawae "but that's great, it's really cool. Mawae added that photography for her means "being in your own world from the time you take out the camera until you put it away."
