This year the New Era presents selected winners in the poetry and photography categories of the contest. Once again, more photographs were received than entries in all other categories combined. Many of the photographs have been kept for use in this and future issues of the New Era. The photographs and poetry on these pages are not only winners, but are also representative of the quality and variety of the work submitted. All entrants in the New Era Writing, Art, and Photography Contest should be commended for the quality, depth, and sensitivity of their work.
