We’ve been threatening to enter this contest for years. If we do actually get our act together this year and submit something, we’ll try to let you know ASAP so you won’t bother wasting your time going through the process. I mean, with pictures like this in our archives, from the parade in May, we’re a virtual lock to win (it hits on sites, community and diversity criteria cited below).
Anyway, the details:
The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club is pleased to announce the annual cover contest for the 2011-2012 Wellesley Phone Book. All artists and photographers, young and old, are encouraged to participate! The theme should celebrate the town of Wellesley, the sites, community and diverse nature of the town. This is the 43rd year of the Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club “Wellesley Phone Book”. Proceeds from the Wellesley Phone Book go toward college scholarships for Wellesley students and to local charities.
The winner will receive a cash award of $150 and have his/her artwork displayed on the cover of over 14,000 phone books. Entries should be a drawing, painting or a photograph. They may be in color or black and white. Submissions should be 8×10, camera-ready, and vertical in format. All entries will be judged on quality and content. The deadline is Wednesday, December 15, 2010. Submissions should be sent to: Katy Wallace, 58 Fiske Rd, Wellesley, MA 02481.
Speaking of the WHJWC, members celebrated a successful Wellesley Marketplace at the middle school on Saturday.
