"America the Beautiful" photo contest

Greetings to all my Photography Friends!

The East Windsor Veterans Commission is having an "America the Beautiful" photo contest as a fund raiser.  The deadline has been extended until April 30, 2017.  It has also been mentioned on the NECCC Blog and on the East Windsor Veterans Commission Facebook page.  I'm sure all of you have at least that one and most definitely several award winning photos you can submit for this contest.  It's $10 per print and you'll have to include the 4x6 or 3x5 sized print.  Prizes are $500 for 1st Place, $250 for 2nd Place and $100 for 3rd Place.  It's for a good cause, so please consider it!  

I've attached the the entry form and official contest rules to this email. Please pass on this information and also forward this email to the club members and photography friends.  Thank You and Good Luck!  I've already submitted my photos!  

Hope everyone is staying warm this snowy weekend!

Best Regards,
Eva Gryk



This is to advise you that the East Windsor Veterans Commission "America the Beautiful" photo contest that you entered has been extended until April 30, 2017.  We needed a minimum of 85 entries to break even and are currently at 60 entries.  The Commission decided to extend the deadline rather than cancel the contest.  We are confident that we will receive the needed number of entries by the end of April.  In any case, the prizes will be awarded.  We will announce the winners at Town's Memorial Day celebration in May.  We will notify the winners at that time.  A new entry form and revised rules with the new deadline are available on the East Windsor Veterans Commission Facebook page.   

We want to thank you for your patience, your beautiful photos and most of all your support!  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at my  email address.

America the Beautiful photo contest

Thanks for running information regarding the America the Beautiful photo contest that is sponsored by the East Windsor Veterans Commission (on Facebook).  Our original deadline of January 31, 2017 has been extended until April 30, 2017.   We needed to receive 85 entries in order to break even.   Although we didn't reach our goal, the group decided to extend the contest.  They feel confident that we will get there by the end of April.   They will award the prizes of $500, $250 and $100 even if we don't hit 85 entries.  The prize winners will be announced at the Town's Memorial Day celebration.   Amateur photographers can submit a photo showing what they feel makes America beautiful.    The photos do not need to be patriotic.  The entry fee is $10 and the proceeds will help our local veterans erect monuments on the Town green to honor veterans who have served in all conflicts including the current one.  To receive more information go to the East Windsor Veterans Commission Facebook page.   A new entry form and the revised rules reflecting the new date can be viewed and downloaded or you can email me at pamela.putinas@att.net.   My husband Bruce is a member of the Commission.  We appreciate all the support we have received thus far.  Thanks!
