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 June contest must be received by June 22, 2018.
With all correspondence, please include your name, mailing address and
phone number.

April 2018

Our winners from April 2018 are Julie Marchman, of Toccoa, who
took the photo, and Bert Williamson, of Ellabell, who correctly guessed
that it is a statue of Paul Anderson, who won a gold medal in weightlifting at the 1956 Olympics and was known as "The World's Strongest
Man." The statue is found at Paul Anderson Memorial Park in Toccoa, his
hometown. A story about Anderson and the youth home he established
in Vidalia appeared in the February 2012 issue of GEORGIA Magazine
(bit.ly/pand212).
