“Warming Up in Windsor” Photography Contest

Send in your entry now!


Attention, Windsor photographers of all ages:  The Windsor Historical Society is looking for you! On Tuesday April 12th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., the Society is holding a “Warming up in Windsor” photography contest featuring photographs of Windsor people, places, or events.   It could be an image of a child with hands wrapped around a cup of steaming hot chocolate, or birds fluffed up against the cold.   Perhaps snowdrifts or ice formations have captured your interest.  Or have you just been lucky enough to encounter the first snowdrops or crocuses of spring?   Interested photographers who live or work in Windsor are asked to email or send a CD with up to five of their favorite digital photographs (jpeg format only) fitting this theme and suitable for a family audience to Christine Ermenc, Windsor Historical Society, 96 Palisado Avenue, Windsor, CT  06095 or cermenc@windsorhistoricalsociety.org  by April 5, 2010. 


The purpose of the photography contest is to simulate public interest in photography and in exploring Windsor to discover what makes our town special.  You do not have to be a professional photographer to enter; the second-place winner in last year’s photography contest was a Sage Park Middle School student! 


The photographs can be submitted on their individual merits or submitted to be seen as a series; just let us know.   All photographs will be posted on the Society’s Facebook page and viewed in a PowerPoint presentation at the Society on April 12th.  Vote for your favorite Windsor photographs on the Society’s Facebook page until April 11th and/or attend the evening presentation to register your choice. We will combine Facebook tallies and votes registered at the April 12th meeting to award the following prizes:   


First Prize:  $100

Second Prize:  $75

Third Prize:  $50


With the digital image files (jpeg format, up to five), please submit your:


Address (including telephone and e-mail).  If a non-Windsor resident, please give your Windsor workplace address

A sentence or two describing yourself, your interest in photography, and captioning information desired for your photographs.


The longer your images are posted on the Society’s Facebook page, the more opportunity they have to get votes, so register soon.  The contest will only be open to those who have pre-registered for it.     Please pass the word to photographers you know, put the date on your calendar and get out with your camera to capture the many beauties of the season Windsor has to offer!   This program is supported by the Greater Hartford Arts Council.
