Photography Contest

BRACA and its Tree Committee held a Spring Tree Photography Contest in 2021. Amateur photographers were asked to aim to capture any unique aspect of a tree and should consider the bark, structure, etc. Photographs that met the contest requirements were submitted to a panel of judges to determine the winner. The winning photograph was featured in the Xenia Daily Gazette, was on display in the lobby of the City of Xenia Administration Building, and was showcased on the City’s social media, government channel, and this website.
