Mary Ann Bozzetti of Bradenton saw her prince hiding in a hand of bananas, and the photo has captured the grand prize in The Islander’s eight-week-long Top Notch photo contest. Titled “My Prince” by Bozzetti, the photo has earned her $100 from The Islander, a gift certificate from Mister Robert’s Resortwear and and a dining certificate for Ooh La La! Bistro. Runners-up, including some deserving snapshots that just didn’t quite make it to be winners, will be featured in next week’s edition of The Islander.

The final winner in The Islander’s eight-week summer photo contest, “Top Notch,” is Tom Gross of West Lafayette, Ind., with this, er, sort of self-portrait, in which he hand-feeds and maintains his focus on a resident flamingo at Sarasota Jungle Gardens. Gross will receive a coveted “More Than a Mullet Wrapper” Islander T-shirt and $50 from the newspaper. The photo will now go into a pool with other weekly winners eligible for the contest grand-prize package, including $100 from The Islander and a variety of gift certificates.
