Visit with the Friends of the Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library, the Little River Audubon Society, Southern Exposure Photography and Burdoc Weddings and Events between March 15 and April 4 to walk among the winning bird photographs from this year’s Audubon Photography Awards and photographs from local photographers and learn more about birdlife. The exhibit will be open during regular Library hours.

Toni Riley, President of the Friends of the Library and member of the Audubon Society said, “ It is such a a wonderful opportunity to bring these photographs to Hopkinsville and showcase them as well as our own local photographers at the Library.”

Selected from more than 5,500 entries, the winning photos were published in the Summer 2017 issue of Audubon Magazine and show birdlife at its most vivid, vulnerable, formidable, and elegant. Photographers from 49 states and eight Canadian provinces submitted images in three categories: professional, amateur, and youth. A panel of five judges had the daunting task of sifting through the stunning images and grading them based on technical quality, originality, and artistic merit.
