Ross Park Photo Wins National Award

The Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park is now a little more famous thanks to one local photographer.

Andrea Jacobs' photo of the zoo's fox "August" was voted People's Choice Award Winner.

It was chosen out of more than 28,000 photos from the World Wide Photo Walk Contest.

Jacobs took the photo at the zoo in October. She found out she was the winner earlier this week.

"It's been great so far and I am thrilled. I'm so happy the zoo is getting attention too. That's a big deal for them," Andrea Jacobs, People's Choice Worldwide Photo Walk Winner said.

"It's helped give the zoo expanded exposure and helped put Ross Park back on the map which is really what we intended to do," Zoo Director Steven Contento said.

The World Wide Photo Walk contest is hosted by photographer Scott Kelby.


thousands of cities around the world participate each year.
