We’re excited to announce that entries are now being accepted for the Second Annual Joseph E. Gadbois “God Bless America” Photo Contest! Launched last year, in honor of Joe’s 41-year career with Catholic Financial Life, the contest celebrates his love of photography and for our country. This year’s theme is “Patriotism.” Patriotism includes the ways that we are responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic ... from those working as first responders, medical professionals or in other essential jobs during this time of uncertainty, to those caring for one another by staying at home and keeping our neighbors and families safe.
Members and non-members are invited to submit a photo they have personally taken along with a brief description of the photo and how it relates to our theme. Everyone who enters will receive a commemorative gift. Photos will be judged on quality, composition and alignment with our theme. Winners will be selected in both youth (under 18) and adult categories. The top three photos in each age group will be featured in the Fall 2020 edition of Radiant Life and posted on our website. First place winners will also receive a gift card.
The deadline to submit photos is September 15, 2020.
Please submit all photos below or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Joseph E. Gadbois “God Bless America” Photo Contest. Attach the original digital photo to the email and include a description, the category (adult or youth), your name and contact information in the body of the message.
Photos must be submitted electronically and be your own personal work. Photos of individuals should be submitted with the consent of the individual, their parent or guardian. Photos will be judged on quality, composition and alignment with the theme.
