Submit a photo of your holiday cheer for a chance to win $500

Spread some holiday cheer and enter to win $500 through Central Hudson’s second annual Holiday Spirit Photo Contest. 

Simply snap a photo of your home’s holiday decorations and email it to for your chance to win.

“Decorating for the holidays is a special tradition for families throughout the Mid-Hudson Valley,” said Charles A. Freni, President and CEO of Central Hudson. “Whether you string bright, LED lights outside your home, inflate your favorite holiday characters or hang a decorative wreath outside your door, we encourage you to share your holiday spirit with us. This is a special time of year, so let’s rejoice in the magic of the season.”

Entrants may submit photographs of decorations inside or outside of their homes. All holidays celebrated from now through the end of December are welcome, including religious holidays and the New Year.

To enter the contest, Central Hudson customers must send an original, unpublished photo taken of their holiday decorations to by noon on Dec. 17. One entry per customer is permitted. A selection of finalists will be posted to Central Hudson’s Instagram page on Dec. 20. Users can then pick their favorite by first following Central Hudson’s Instagram page, then liking their favorite image. The photo with most likes on Dec. 30 at noon, will be declared the winner and will receive $500.
