Thank you to everyone who participated in our #luvwilmingtonoh Instagram contest. We encouraged you – the people who #luvwilmingtonoh – to submit photos of the things you love about Downtown Wilmington – the people, places, events, buildings, and views that make our community the place you are proud to call home. And WOW! We had trouble selecting the winners! In the end, we had two prize-winning photographs, both taken inside buildings celebrating anniversaries this year:
- Becky Bowman (@rebeccaakbowman) shared her photo of the stained-glass window, balcony, and rafters of Wilmington Friends Meetinghouse, which will celebrate its 150th anniversary this spring.
- Veronica Campbell (@vlee_82) shared her photo of the stage of the Murphy Theatre taken from the old film sound booth, celebrating its 100th anniversary this summer.
We also selected two photos for Honorable Mention:
- Sabrina Bowman (@sabrinabowmanart) shared her witty photo of a strategically-placed traffic cone in front of the mural in the Mural Parking Lot.
- Sonja Koehler (@sonjakoehler) shared her photo of the party lights across the Mural Parking Lot, reminding us that the back of Main Street can be just as beautiful as the front.
Contest winners received a basket of Valentine’s Day-themed gifts from local businesses. A big THANK YOU to Fiesta Veracruz, Kava Haus, Shoppes at the Old Mill, South Street Wine Cellar, and Swindler & Sons Florist for donating items.
Keep your eyes open – and your camera handy – all year to show how you #luvwilmingtonoh !
