Local teen wins photo contest

Posted: Updated:

Congratulations are in order for local teen Damian Galasso!

Damian won the $5,000 dollar grand prize for the 6th Annual Adventures in Nature Photo Contest. His photo is a dragonfly's head, with morning dew droplets on it. Damian was able to capture the stunning image through a microscope.

Damian said, "My goal in photography is to make viewers experience what I saw and felt the moment I took the photo.”

The contest was between students, from Tucson, Phoenix, Prescott and Sedona. There were 1,140 entries.

Other local honorable mentions and winners of a $250 prize:

  • Jacqueline Maldonado, Tucson, for “Hummingbird”
  • Zach Schlamowitz, Tucson, for “Color Rained Out”
  • Julian Pimienta, Tucson, for “Tanque Verde Canyon”
