The Village of Lombard is pleased to announce this year’s top-winning photographs of the 2023 “Hidden Gems of Lombard” Photo Contest. The contest invited residents and guests to submit photos showcasing the unique places and moments that make Lombard such a remarkable community. After careful consideration, the top three winners have been selected from an impressive pool of submissions.
The winning entries of the photo contest are as follows:
- First Place – “A Living Monet in Lilacia” by Jan Eigenfeld

All three of the top-placing photos will be displayed at Village Hall, will be used on the Village’s website, and will be featured in next week’s e-newsletter. The winners will also receive Visa gift cards valued at $100, $50 and $25, respectively.
“I would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s contest.
