Inspired by some of the powerful images that IBEW Local 1245 members have been sharing on social media, the union’s Executive Board announced a new quarterly photo contest at the April Advisory Council meeting. Winners will receive a prize of $500.
“Our members are taking spectacular pictures every day with smartphones,” Business Manager Tom Dalzell told the Advisory Council as he announced the new contest. “As much as we appreciate and respect the professional photography of our union photographer, John Storey, we know that there’s also some good stuff happening out there, and we want to see it. We hope this contest catches on!”
All active 1245 members are eligible to participate in the contest. Members may submit up to five photos per quarter. Submissions should be sent to Communications Director Rebecca Band at RGB1@ibew1245.com or by mail to PO Box P.O. Box 2547, Vacaville CA 95696, and must be received by the 1st of July, October, January and April. By submitting photos, the owner grants the union permission to post and publish the photos as it sees fit.
As the contest judge, John Storey will select one winner each quarter, and the winners will be announced and awarded their $500 prize at the quarterly Advisory Council meeting. The winning photos will appear in the Utility Reporter, and will also be featured on the walls of Weakley Hall.
