ALBION — Two Orleans County residents were chosen among 435 entries seeking to represent the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor during the 2020 Erie Canalway Photo Contest.

The contest included four categories. The top three entries were chosen for each category, along with 12 honorable mentions. Cory Pawlaczyk, of Medina, took second place in the Along the Trail category for his image “Sunrise on the Path (Medina).” Susan Starkweather Miller, of Albion, received an honorable mention for “Tug DeWitt Clinton Settles in to Fall (Adams Basin).”

“These remarkable images remind us that the NYS Canal System remains a symbol of strength for our communities, providing a distinct sense of place and pride in where we live, work and play. We are delighted to share them widely,” said Executive Director Bob Radliff of the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor in a news release.

Winning images can be viewed online and will be featured in the 2021 Erie Canalway calendar, which will be available for free at libraries, visitor centers, and by request beginning in December.
