The theme of the contest was “Capturing Your City: Urban Life,” and the public was invited to share everyday encounters and random events in public spaces that best represent Oceanside to each participant.
The winners for the Amateur Photography Contest Adults 21-and-over category is Shawn Daniels, with “Only in O’side,” a photo of activity on The Strand.
The winner in the Teens/Young Adult ages 14-to-20 category is Alice Villa with “Reading in the Peace,” taken at the Civic Center fountain.
In the youth, ages up-to-13 category, the winner was Annika Akin with “Harbor Swing,” taken at Camp Pendleton Park.
