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 March contest must be received by March 22,
2018. With all correspondence, please include your name, mailing
address and phone number.
Our winners from January 2018 are Robert Scoda, of Blairsville, who took the photo, and Linda V. Hutto, of Eatonton, who correctly guessed that it is a sculpture of a mariachi band outside a
Mexican restaurant in Cartersville.
