Barrett Cole's winning photograph in the "Retail as Art" contest

Barrett Cole of Hillcrest High School won first place in the “Retail as Art” competition hosted by UCR Realty for her photograph, “Untitled”. The contest had more than 100 submissions from across Dallas ISD. A panel of judges (local photographers) selected the top three finalists, which included second and third place winners Tori Baker and Jessica Quezada of Booker T. Washington.

The contest aims to recognize local photography that “captures the true essence of retail”. All proceeds from sales of the student art benefit the UCR “Retail as Art” Fund for educational and charitable purposes.
