Pop-Up Party Showcasing Winners of the 2023 Buzz Photo Contest
For 17 years, The Buzz Magazines has hosted an annual photo contest, which is open to amateur local photographers; submissions are reviewed by a panel of professional photographers. Every year, the winning photographs are printed in our July issue. This year, for the first time, winning photos were also displayed in a beautiful pop-up gallery located in River Oaks District, June 26-30. Visitors were encouraged to come by and see the photos in person and vote for their favorites via QR code for a special People’s Choice award.
In conjunction with the pop-up gallery, The Buzz Magazines and River Oaks District collaborated to host a pop-up gallery party showcasing the winning images. Guests, including Photo Contest winners and their families, enjoyed mixing and mingling over beverages and appetizers provided by Bari Ristorante. It was a unique opportunity to experience the photographs in a three-dimensional format and meet some of the photographers.
A fun coincidence is that Emily Jaschke, event photographer for the gallery party, submitted her own photos for our Photo Contest back in 2007 and had winning photos in two categories (scroll through the slideshow below for a throwback to Jaschke’s winning 2007 photos).
A special thank you to 2023 judges, Eric Forsythe, Nikky LaWell, and Terry Vine; photo contest sponsors, Houston Camera Exchange and The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa; gallery sponsors, River Oaks District, Arnoult Fine Art Consulting, and Portable Gallery Walls; and thank you to Public Content.
If you haven’t yet had a chance to see the gallery, stop by today between 12-5 p.m.
