Heather Heater Wins Photo Contest

Heather Heater, a senior convergent media major, won first place and a $1,000 check in a Kansas City Star photo contest. Her entry, one of 146 submitted, shows a pinup model sitting on a classic car.

The contest was open to the public, with 45 percent of the votes from visitors to the Kansas City Star website and the remaining from judges at the Star.

The contest guidelines called for a photo depicting a favorite car moment, along with text that describes that moment. Heather wrote about her love of classic cars and taking photos of pin-up girls.

"I dress the models, do their hair and make-up and then set the scene," she wrote. "I loved the color of the car and thought that the flat black really brought out the color the of glossy pink."
She added that this was the first car that an owner allowed someone to sit on or rest against.
She picked up her check in Kansas City on March 3 and had her photo taken with a couple of Star representatives. Her photo will be published in the paper and online.
