Savings Bank of Walpole Announces Call for Entries for Community Calendar and Website Photo Contest
Contest begins Monday, May 11, and will be held in conjunction with NH Mutual Bancorp Affiliates
Keene, NH – Savings Bank of Walpole is excited to announce a call for entries for its 2020 Community Calendar and Website Photo Contest. The contest runs from Monday, May 11 through Saturday June 20, 2020 and is being held in conjunction with the other affiliates of New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp (NHMB) including Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB), Merrimack County Savings Bank (the Merrimack) and NHTrust.
Winning photos will demonstrate a strong focus on community events and people enjoying the venues, attractions and local businesses of New Hampshire and highlight the unique character and beauty of the state.
Chosen images will be featured on the websites and social media accounts for Savings Bank of Walpole and/or its subsidiaries of NHMB, as well as in a 2021 wall calendar. Each bank will release a unique calendar containing photos that are local to the communities they serve. Photos may also be selected for holiday cards and note cards.
A $100 cash prize will be awarded for each winning photo – and contestants can submit up to a maximum of 10 entries. Judging of all submitted photography will be blind, therefore the judging panel will not know the name of the photographer. Decisions will be based on suitability of the subject, quality of the photography, and adherence to the purpose of the contest.
“Last year was the first year we participated in this contest and we were impressed with the community’s involvement. We encourage photographers of all skill levels to show us their local spirit by submitting entries,” says Mark Bodin, President of Savings Bank of Walpole. “There are so many amazing sites, landmarks and events in our community that we anticipate receiving a lot of entries again this year.”
Winning photos for the calendar contest will be displayed in the 2021 community calendars for each of our affiliated local banks. They may also be selected for use in SBW’s annual holiday cards or other occasion cards. Winning photos for the website contest may be displayed on the websites and social media pages for each of the affiliated local banks, NH Mutual Bancorp and/or NHTrust.
To ensure the safety of contest participants and bank employees, all eligible entries should be submitted electronically through a dedicated link located on each bank’s website.
