Congratulations to this year's winners:
Grand Prize Winner
Lisa Norman-Hudson, a photography student at Pellissippi State Technical Community College in Knoxville, Tennessee, was selected by a panel of three Olympus Visionary judges. This creative image titled, “The Dawn of Technology” looks like a city at sunrise but is actually a computer’s circuit board. As the grand prize winner, Lisa receives a $5,000 scholarship and an Olympus E-3 camera, ED 12-60mm f2.8/4.0 SWD Zoom lens, ED 50-200mm f2.8/3.5 SWD Zoom lens and gadget bag. Lisa’s professor, Wade Payne, will also receive an E-3 camera.

For the first time, the Photographers of Tomorrow contest posted the 20 finalist images online and opened voting to the public. Erica Smith of the Art Institute of Colorado in Denver, Colorado, was selected for this image titled, “Foggy Day on the Lake.” The serene image features a man in a boat among the mist. Erica will receive an Olympus E-520 kit.
