Showcases Best Interpretations of Time from Contest Hosted by Corel Discovery Center

COLUMBIA, PA: The National Watch and Clock Museum is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibit, A Matter of Time, in the Museum’s Rotunda until September 5, 2016. This exhibit showcases the top 10 photos from the Matter of Time photo contest, organized by the Corel® Discovery Center.

The contest drew nearly 700 entries from amateur and professional photographers over a six-week period, each portraying an image of a timepiece or their own take on the concept of “time.”

"Working together with the National Watch and Clock Museum, our team was impressed by the creativity and beauty in the hundreds of entries the Matter of Time contest received,” said Alex Brazeau, from Corel's Photo Team. “The contest was a great success and we're thrilled to see the winners' and finalists' artistic interpretations of time honored in this special exhibit."

A panel of photography experts from Corel, along with Museum Director Noel Poirier, evaluated each image. The contest also included a voting component, where visitors could cast votes for their favorite photos. Judging criteria consisted of creativity, originality, composition, and layout. Winning submissions and top finalists can be seen on the Corel Discovery Center website or in-person in the Museum’s Rotunda through September 5, 2016.
