Winner Selection Methodology and Winner Notification
Voting is open to all Facebook users who are capable of “liking” a photo posted on our page. The voting period will begin when Central Hudson posts the finalists to its Facebook page and will end at 12 p.m. EST on Friday, Nov. 22. Shortly thereafter, the finalist photo in the album designated for voting that has received the greatest number of “likes” from different people prior to the 12 p.m. cutoff will be declared the winner.

Only those likes registered directly on the designated photos on our Facebook page will be counted.

Likes on posts promoting the contest or on posts separate from the designated contest finalists will not be counted. Likes deemed by Central Hudson employees monitoring the process to have been made after the cutoff time will not be counted. Central Hudson’s decision when declaring a winner is final.

Entrants may solicit support for their photographs through their own personal Facebook accounts, but that is not required.

The winner will be contacted at the email address from which they submitted the photo and/or by the telephone number provided.

By entering, entrants grant Central Hudson the full right to use their submitted photographs without further consent.

By submitting a photograph, the entrant verifies that they are the photographer of and owner of the rights to publish the photograph. Central Hudson is not responsible for any copyright infringements perpetrated by entrants.
