COD Photo student Julie Klemens was one of only 40 photographers accepted into an exhibition at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, IL. There were 1200 submissions to the contest.
Cantigny in Focus is an annual event for amateur photographers that began in 2006. Submitted images must be from the grounds of Cantigny Park in Wheaton, the 500-acre former estate of Robert R. McCormick and part of the Chicago-based Robert R. McCormick Foundation.
Cantigny Park, part of the Chicago-based Robert R. McCormick Foundations, is the 500-acre Wheaton estate of Robert R. McCormick.
On February 3, the top 40 images from the 2011 edition of Cantigny in Focus went on display at the park. The three grand prize winners will again be determined by the public, with voting conducted throughout 2012.
Cantigny Park is closed in January and will reopen on weekends in February (Friday- Sunday). The park returns to a 7-day schedule in March.
