Send in your entry now!
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
