CVEA Ruralite Cover Photo Contest Winners Announced!

Copper Valley Electric Association (CVEA) is pleased to announce the winners of the 10th Annual Ruralite Magazine Cover Photo Contest. Congratulations to Ed Pinsky, Nicole Wattengel, Russell Posey, and Wayne McKinzey. Three of Ed Pinky’s photos were chosen by CVEA employees this year; Abandon Lodge, Pals, and Reflections. Nicole Wattengel also won for her three photos Lights Dancing, Wrangell Lights, and Sunrise Over Drum. Russell Posey won for his photo Fiery Sunrise, and Wayne McKinzey for his photo Allison Lake in June.

40 photos were submitted by nine member photographers. After being narrowed to 18 finalists, a team of CVEA employees voted on their top 8 photos. These votes were tallied to determine the winners. Winners will all receive $100 per photo and will be featured on the cover of Ruralite in 2017, and on CVEA's Facebook page and cvea.org.
