The Third Annual Pinhole Challenge is over, and the results are in.

Well, most of the results are in.

Your vote is needed to award the People’s Choice prize. To vote, you have to drop by the Crafts Center, check out the various images of NC State and then vote (only once, please) on “your favorite image that best represents the spirit of NC State.” Judging will run through 5 p.m. on Oct. 21. The winner receives $100 and a free Crafts Center class.

Meanwhile, the Judges’ Award went to Pamela Ocampo, who is working on a masters in computer science. Here’s what the judges had to say about Ocampo’s photo of the atrium at D.H. Hill Library: “Her stunning photograph of the Atrium is wonderfully composed in a great display of visual clarity and depth of field.”

Ocampo received $100 and a free Crafts Center class.

The judges also gave out an award for the photo that best captures the ongoing renovation of the Talley Student Center. Nicole Vayo, a biology major, won for what the judges called a “perfect snapshot that captures this special time on campus.”
