2018

Thank you to all of our adult and youth photographers who used their time and talents to help us protect open space with a click! To see this year’s Top 25 Freeze Frame Gallery click here!

Winning photos will be on exhibit across the Tri-Valley, featured in our 2019 calendar and help us to show why we need to protect these places that make our home so amazing (like parks, vineyards, farms and ranches)!

Awards & Celebration

Unique and amazing perspectives of open space across the Tri-Valley graced the walls during the opening exhibit and award ceremony for the 2018 Freeze Frame Photography competition. Attendees were among the first to see the new works of art that will help to protect more lands, celebrate local photographers and enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres. Plus,  everyone who joined us had one more chance to cast another vote for People’s Choice!

Photographers are invited to show us their view of the Tri-Valley’s beauty in our annual photography competition. What better way to show our fellow community members why these lands need to be protected than by showcasing their beauty through a photograph? The top photos will be exhibited across the East Bay to display your talent and the lovely lands of the Tri-Valley that connect our communities and enrich our lives.
