The city of Southfield announced the winner of the 2020 Southfield Photo Prize at an awards reception on Thursday, October 1. The ceremony was held outdoors at the Southfield Municipal Campus Picnic Shelter to practice safe social distancing.

The city of Southfield sponsored the 4th   annual Southfield Photo Prize competition and outdoor exhibition this summer to showcase the natural and architectural beauty throughout the city. Nearly 200 submissions were received and initially reviewed by the Total Living Commission which selected the top 25 photos that were eligible for public voting from July 10 – August 31. The Photo Prize finalists were enlarged and placed on public display at city hall and the parks & recreation building with online voting at www.cityofsouthfield.com.

The results were determined by the most overall online votes each finalist received. First place was awarded to Timothy McNutt with over 350 votes for his photo taken at Bauervic Woods Park. Second place was awarded to Ronald Taylor for his photo taken at American Commerce Center Nature Preserve and James Simpson was awarded third place for his photo of a double rainbow over the Southfield skyline.  The winning photographs and finalists will be featured in the City’s 2021 calendar and other city marketing materials. The 2020 Southfield Photo Prize 1st place winner received a gift certificate and bag of Southfield swag and all finalists received their enlarged photos to keep.
