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 separately.
Guesses for the January contest must be received by Jan. 22,
2018. With all correspondence, please include your name, mailing address and phone number.
Our winners from November 2017 are Sue Johnson, of Alma,
who took the photo, and Tammy Usry, of Sandersville, who correctly
guessed that it is a veterans memorial in Alma.
