    Four images by local photographers have been selected as the winners in Visit Shawnee's 2022 Find Your Adventure photo contest, which challenged photographers to take and submit images that would inspire visitors and residents alike to find their next adventure in Shawnee, Oklahoma. The winning photographs were chosen by a panel of arts and culture leaders from across the community. The winners by category are: The Great Outdoors Lexi Dixon's photograph taken at Shawnee's Twin Lakes Reservoir was the judge's favorite image of the Great Outdoors submissions. Lexi is an employee of Shawnee Milling Company, and recently relocated to Shawnee from Washington State. "In June this year, myself and two coworkers planned an early morning kayak trip to Twin Lake #2 to catch the sunrise," Dixon said. "I happened to catch this photo of (a friend) enjoying the peaceful, quiet morning with glass-like water and amazing sunrise." Indoor Fun Lacey Holt's photo of little Cambria, one of the first children to play at Laynie's Treehouse indoor playground at Shawnee Mall, was the favorite image of Indoor Fun entries. Lacey is the Executive Director of Legacy Parenting Center, a nonprofit benefitting Pottawatomie County families. "Laynie's Treehouse is a project to support the mission of Legacy Parenting Center," said Holt. "We love this photo because Cambria's smile is contagious and so is the fun!" Festivals & Events Amy Jenkins' magical photo of one of this year's Balloon Festival glow wowed the panel and took top honors in the Festivals & Events category. "I really can't imagine living anywhere else... I'm proud to call Shawnee home, and look forward to seeing how we continue to grow," Jenkins said. "Firelake's Fireflight Balloon Festival is one of Shawnee’s best events; the music and food vendors are great, but the balloon glow is the crowd favorite. It’s absolutely beautiful!" People Enjoying Shawnee, OK Thomas Hibben's photograph of his daughter, June won't stop winning hearts, and also took top prize in the final category, People Enjoying Shawnee. "This is a photo of my daughter June Bell double-fisting some of Shawnee's best snow cones," said Hibben. "One is never enough, if mom is sitting next to you & not eating fast enough you have to help. She's all about lending a hand!" Runners-Up While only the top photograph in each category won a prize, many photographs depicted Shawnee in unique and beautiful ways. View the gallery below to see the runner-up photos.
