Judges from the Sierra Arts Foundation had the difficult task of selecting the top photographs, as community members from branch service areas submitted photos of local main streets, community landmarks and country landscapes.

Photos will be displayed on Plumas Bank’s website and ATM screens, at branch offices, on social media, and more.
