Thank you to all those who contributed photos for our 2021 Illinois Route 66 Photo of the Year Contest! It was a pleasure perusing the pictures, vicariously traveling along and enjoying the Mother Road with you! I’ve narrowed the field to my favorite three and now it’s your turn to pick the winner!
Here they are – in no particular order:
Vote for your favorite by emailing your preference to firstname.lastname@example.org before Wednesday, February 23, 2022. The winner will be announced by February 28 and the winning photo will take residence as our association’s Facebook cover photo for the month of March, 2022. The top photo submitter will also win a Route 66-themed prize package (details are forthcoming).
(The featured image for this post (below) has already won Honorable Mention (and Editor Gina’s comedic appreciation.) Thank you, John P. DeWitt for illustrating for us all the quote from Lord of the Rings, “All who wander are not lost.” And if you’re in a wandering frame of mind, there’s no better place than along Route 66…)
