Fall Foliage Photography Contest

BRACA and its Tree Committee would like to thank all who participated in the first Fall Foliage Photography Contest! The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photos, as well as all other entries, can be seen in our photo gallery. The winning photo is on display in the reception area at City Hall.

Capturing the beauty of trees in their autumn finery will be the goal of those entering the City of Xenia Tree Committee Fall Foliage Photography Contest. Photographs of the most beautiful tree within the city limits of Xenia will be eligible with the winning photograph chosen by a panel of judges. The winning photograph will be featured in the Xenia Daily Gazette, on display in the lobby of the City of Xenia Municipal Building during the month of December, and showcased on the City's Facebook page, government channel and website.
