Graf Places in Rural Healthcare Photo Contest
[Dodgeville] Photos taken by Tami Graf of Dodgeville, have earned recognition in a photo contest organized by the Wisconsin Office of Rural Health (WORH). Graf’s photo of a rural clinic sign earned a Gold Prize, taking first place in the healthcare facility category and two other photos received honorable mention.
Graf (pictured here) graduated from Madison Area Technical College in May of this year, with a degree in Visual Communications. Working to build a strong portfolio, Graf offered her talent as a volunteer photographer for Upland Hills Health and has helped to visually record several of the organization’s events.
Earlier this fall when the photo contest was announced, Graf teamed up with Upland Hills Health Director of Acute Care Services, Tammy Rule to capture the essence of healthcare in Iowa County. The two worked feverishly one morning, producing hundreds of photos and Graf submitted fifteen to the contest.
Their hard work paid off when three of the images made it to the top 16 in the contest. Graf’s photo of the Upland Hills Health Montfort Clinic Sign with farm silos in the background, earned the highest recognition in its category receiving the Gold Prize – First Place in Healthcare Facility Category, and her photo of the Compassion Way street sign earned honorable mention. Graf’s photo of a patient speaking to a doctor and nurse earned honorable mention in the Provider Category. (Shown below)
