From more than 100 photos of pumpkins, foliage and familiar campus locations, the winners of William & Mary's first-ever fall and Halloween photo contest have been selected.

The winning photos will be featured on the William & Mary homepage beginning Wednesday. All of the 124 contest entries may be viewed on William & Mary's Flickr stream.

In the people's choice category, Amy Hewett '98 won for her photo of a smiling baby wearing a William & Mary shirt and sitting among pumpkins, titled "A little Tribe in the pumpkin patch." The winner in this category was chosen based on votes from the campus community and general public.

Freshman Thomas Ward won in the student category for his photo of a black cat against a slate-gray street, titled "Her function is to be admired." In the alumni category, Matt Brandon '92 won for his photo of a yellow and orange speckled leaf set against rocks, titled "Leaf rests on rocks." And in the "other" category, Corinne Audemard, an assistant research scientist at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, won for her close-up shot of an orange and red leaf with a small bite in it, titled "Leaf Snack."

The winners in the student, alumni and other categories were chosen by a panel of judges, including Cindy Baker, director of publications; Ben Boone, special assistant to the dean of students; Tina Coleman, managing editor of the William & Mary Web site; and Cherie Seise ‘10. Jesse Windley and Joel Pattison of Information Technology provided technical support for the contest.

"The panel had some very hard choices to make," said Windley. "They were all very impressed with the quality and variety of the submissions. We could not be more proud of our William & Mary community. Go Tribe!"

Windley expects the William & Mary Web Team to host similar photo contests in the future. In the meantime, people interested may submit photos to William & Mary’s Flickr stream.
