Off the Wall Photo Contest Winners

The California Chamber of Commerce has named the winning entries in the Off the Wall Photo Contest.

A strong field of 54 contestants submitted photos of how they upcycled their outdated 2014 employment notices poster.

The entrants drummed up support via social network contacts to win the most popular votes.

In addition, a panel of CalChamber judges selected two other winners.

Popular Vote

First place in the popular vote is Ashley Hall, legal secretary at the Glendale law firm of Knapp Petersen & Clarke. Her photo, “2014 fluttered away,” shows butterflies on a tree trunk.

Placing second again this year is Francisco Cuellar, office services coordinator from the Los Angeles office of Browne George Ross LLP. His photo, labeled “aahhhhh!!!!” displays toy people running from a robot-like figure crafted from a 2014 poster.

Panel of Judges

CalChamber judges awarded first place to Melinda Ellis, finance manager of the First Christian Church of Napa, for her off the wall clutch handbag.
Second place goes to Joyce Goetz, office administrator at Bibles for America in Irvine, for her CalChamber poster skirt.

First place winners in both categories received an Apple® iPad Air 2 ($499 value). Second place winners each received an Amazon Kindle Fire HD ($199 value).*
