The winning entries in the Faces of Evanston photography contest sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Evanston will be displayed at the contest awards ceremony at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 23, at the Noyes Cultural Center, 927 Noyes St.

‘Evanston’s Everyday Heroes’ a contest photo by Joe Simchak.

Kiwanis president Dr. Stamata Blanas says the number of entries and the quality of the photographs reached new heights in this year’s competition. Entitled “Legacy”, the theme dwelled on what is left behind, what matters in the community. Blanas, who spearheaded the contest through the Kiwanis Club, is stepping down as president of the organization. She hopes that the continuation of the contest will be her ‘legacy’ to the arts in the community.

Close to 100 entries made the task of judging for Norah Delaney, executive director of the Evanston Art Center, Mark Thomas, Evanston photographer, Chris Schneberger, Columbia College photography instructor and Dino Robinson, Robinson Design, a challenging exercise.

The photos will be available for viewing at the Noyes Cultural Center from Sept. 23 through Sept. 30 before moving to the First Bank & Trust offices, 820 Church St.. The photos will then be displayed in November at the  2010 Perspectives Gallery, 1310 ½ Chicago Ave., in December at Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave., in January at the Levy Center, 300 Dodge Ave., in February at the Ecology Center, 2024 McCormick Blvd., in March at ETHS, 1600 Dodge Ave. and Family Focus, 2010 Dewey Ave., in April at the McGaw YMCA, 1000 Grove St., in May at Evanston Public Library,1703 Orrington Ave., in June at St. Francis Hospital, 355 Ridge Ave., and in July at the Unicorn Café, 1723 Sherman Ave.
