Zoschak was named for his photo, called “Winter Storage,” of a boat stranded in ice off the Shore Hills docks on Lake Hopatcong in Landing. Eppedio’s photo, called “Sledding through the last rays of a snow day” showed school friends sledding as the sun set on a day when school was closed due to a snowstorm.

The contest winners were Meredith Kurland-Ross of Randolph, Edward Aussem of Morristown and Mia Mutascio of Morris Township. Aside from Zoschak and Eppedio, honorable mentions went to Eleanor Ambramson of Wharton, Diane Blumenfield of Riverdale, Laura Byrne of Randolph, Lisa Epstein of Randolph, Mia Mutascio of Morris Township, Denise Panyik-Dale of Morris Plains and Melissa Zimmerman of Randolph.

“The contest encouraged participants to showcase Morris County’s quality of life and spaces and places,” said the freeholders. “Winners were chosen from more than 180 entries by a special s6-person panel. We would tell you that the choices were not easy, and there was lively debate before the winners were chosen. Winning photos may be used in County of Morris communication pieces and on county websites or newsletters.”
