WCAC Last Minute Christmas Photo Contest


Busy enough? How about a last minute Christmas photo contest to get you in the spirit? The prizes are pretty good.

Submit your best Christmas photo for a chance to win three $50 gift cards: one each from Jake ‘n’ Joes, The Chateau and Marcou Jewelers, PLUS a One Night Stay at the Courtyard Marriott Waltham.

As we receive your photos, we’ll try to post some of them on Facebook.

Submissions will be narrowed down to 4 finalists by WCAC-TV and MAC-TV staff. The finalists will be judged by a panel of three local leaders to determine the winner. The judges are: Mayor Jeannette McCarthy, incoming Boys and Girls Club Executive Director Erica Young and our own Maria Sheehan.

Theme suggestions: outdoor decorations, indoor decorations/trees, Christmas sweaters/costumes, children/families, pets and workplace holiday parties.

The criterion is simple: how much does the photo make you feel that magical Christmas feeling?
