iHeartOswego.com and All Over Events said Paul Kilgore is the winner of the photo contest held in conjunction with the Oswego County Balloon Festival June 6 to June 8.

The grand prize goes to “Reflections,” a stunning photo showing one of the balloons not only landing, but also in a reflection in a pool of water.

Kilgore’s photo will be featured as the cover photo for the Oswego County Balloon Festival on its official Facebook page along with a $25 gift certificate to Jimmie James BBQ in Scriba, and a fine art poster from Copies In Time, Copy & Print Center of Oswego.

In second place is “Green Summer” by Pamela Bessel. The photo is the very definition of serenity. Bessel will also receive a fine art poster of her submission from Copies in Time, Copy & Print Center of Oswego.

The first Oswego County Balloon Festival was held at the Oswego County Fairgrounds in Sandy Creek. The festival featured crafters, bands and, of course, big beautiful hot air balloons.

The 2014 Oswego County Balloon Festival was brought to us by All Over Events. iHeartOswego.com was the official sponsor for the 2014 Oswego County Balloon Festival Photo Contest and has provided all prizes.
