Georgia Magazine - April 2017 - 6
(800) 544-4362, in Georgia; (770) 270-6500
GEORGIA Magazine, the largest-circulation
monthly magazine in the state, is published
by Georgia Electric Membership Corp.
(GEMC), the trade association for Georgia's 41
consumer-owned electric utilities. On average,
more than 540,000 members welcome the
magazine into their homes each month.
Georgia's not-for-profit electric cooperatives
provide reliable, safe and affordable electric
service to more than 73 percent of the state's
land area, serving 4.5 million residents. For
more information, visit www.georgiaemc.com.
Guess where this is and you could win a $25 gift card!
In "Picture this?" the reader whose photo of a Georgia place is published wins a $25 Target gift
card-as does the person who correctly guesses what the photo is and where it was taken. The winner's name (drawn at random from correct guesses) and the answer will appear in a future issue. The
winning photo selected by our staff will be published in exchange for the gift card; Georgia EMC claims
no right in and will ultimately destroy or delete all photos that are not selected.
If you're ready to guess or have taken a photo for us to consider, email picturethis@georgiaemc.
com or mail to "Picture this?," P.O. Box 1707, Tucker, GA 30085. Submissions should be 300-dpi photos
of locations that are accessible to the public and easy to identify. Please send photos and guesses
Guesses for the April contest must be received by April 21, 2017. With all correspondence, please
include your name, mailing address and phone number.
Our winners from February 2017 are Leslie Johnson, of Elberton,
who took the photo, and Della Caywood, of Ocilla, who correctly guessed
that it is Watson Mill Bridge State Park in Madison County. For the
second consecutive month, many readers submitted correct guesses. According to the Georgia State Parks website, gastateparks.org/
watsonmillbridge, this is the longest covered bridge in the state, spanning 229 feet across the South Fork River.
