The winners of the first annual LunaPic Contest were announced with fanfare on LunaTic Day (Friday) in Coney Island’s Luna Park. Jim McDonnell was awarded the grand prize in the film category for this fast-paced, 57-second video of Luna’s rides in action. Contest rules specified that entries be between 30 and 60 seconds in length. Check out Jim’s “Coney Island Dancing” video which we posted on ATZ yesterday and his photo gallery of amusement park photos. As we’ve already said to him: Bravissimo! You’ve really outdone yourself this summer with your pix and vids of Coney!
The grand prize winners in the Lunapic Contest’s film and photo categories receive $500 cash, four 4-hour wristbands, and a Luna bag with merchandise and souvenirs. In the photo category, the grand prize was awarded to Paul Gerace’s Best Overview shot. The first prize winners in the individual categories were Eric Kowalsky, Most Artistic; Sylvia Rosenbaum, Best Close-Up; Mike Cherry, Best Nighttime; Janelle Bara, Best Overview. They receive wristbands and the Luna bag of goodies. Congrats to all! The winning photos may be viewed on the park’s Facebook page.
