The city of New Hope introduced the New Hope In Focus photo contest in 2010 to encourage New Hope residents to take pride in their community and showcase their photography skills. Twenty-two photographers submitted 57 photographs to this year's contest.

A group of volunteer judges selected the winners in three main categories: People, Places, and Nature, and a special category for Youth ages 16 and under. The community chose the winner in the People's Choice Award category. The City Council recognized the winners at its meeting on November 23, 2015.
