Member Event Information
This summer many of us will also hit the road and explore our country visiting national parks, historical sites and theme parks. As you take those trips and celebrate the summer holidays, such as the upcoming July 4th weekend, remember to snap some photos to enter into our Joseph E. Gadbois “God Bless America” Photo Contest!
Members and non-members are invited to submit a photo they have personally taken, capturing the spirit of America in a person, place, or event. Please include a brief description of the photo and how it relates to our theme.
Everyone who enters will receive a commemorative gift. Photos will be judged on quality, composition, and alignment with our theme. Two first place winners in each category – person, place, and event – will be selected in the age groups of under 18 and 18 & older. Each will receive a gift card. First place photos and select “honorable mention” photos in each category will be featured in the Fall 2019 edition of Radiant Life magazine and on our website.
Please submit all photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Joseph E. Gadbois “God Bless America” Photo Contest. Attach the original image to the email, including a caption, your description of how the photo relates to our theme, your age, and contact information in the body of the message. The deadline to submit photos is September 15, 2019.
Photos must be submitted electronically and be your own personal work. Photos of individuals should be submitted with the consent of the individual, their parent or guardian.
