For the 2009 Photo Contest, a panel of professional photographers had the tough assignment of selecting the winning entries. The winning photos are on display in Brookfield Zoo’s Discovery Center lobby through mid December 2009.

The grand prize winner was a photo of a giraffe and her calf, taken by Mark Rosenbaum of Glen Ellyn. He received an airline voucher for round-trip main cabin air transportation for himself and a companion to any destination in the continental United States, excluding Alaska and Hawaii, served directly by American Airlines. Winners in the adult category are Terry Hilliard of Chicago, first place; Suzanne Ridenour of Crystal Lake, second place; and Tony Ranieri of West Dundee. Tom Morris of Bartlett received an honorable mention. Winners in the 11-and-under child category are Rehn Stahulak of Winfield, first place; Brody Stahulak of Winfield, second place; and Dominic Williams of Schaumburg, third place.

The Photo Contest was sponsored by American Airlines, Fisher-Price®, and snapfish. Photos were matted courtesy of House of Color in Countryside.
