A record breaking number of votes came in for our Spring Break 2012 photo contest and we’re excited to announce today that we have THREE WINNERS! 51 percent of the almost 600 votes cast were for a photo called “Baby’s First Spring Break” taken by local photographer, Emily Hernandez. Emily takes the top prize in our contest, for the second year in a row! And with a wee one in the family, the Hernandez family chose to celebrate spring break right here at home.
The top prize in this year’s contest is a $50 gift card to spend at retail shops throughout Barrington that are among the 900+ members of the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce. Chamber president, Janet Meyer, says she’s thrilled to see the prize go to someone who planned a spring break staycation right here in the Barrington area. To see more of Emily’s photography, visit her website at EmilyHernandezPhotography.com.
The photo that scored second place, with 35 percent of the vote, is an image called “Close Encounters” taken by Laury Kossoff……
I love how a little time away from the office brings out a more relaxed, appreciative and creative outlook on life.

Just a boy and a moose…

We’re heading into the home stretch here at 365Barrington.com! I just reminded my husband that, after next Sunday, we’ll only be FOUR DAYS AWAY from day 365. Because our site sees so much traffic on weeks when we host community photo contests and because today is the FIRST DAY OF SPRING, I decided now would be a good time to host one more contest before the year is complete. It’s our first ever “Spring Break Photo Contest” and the grand prize will be a great way for our winner to relax and have fun when the vacation is over.
The rules are easy. I just made them up. Anyone is eligible to enter this contest, whether you’ve jetted off to sea or ski or are having a “Staycation” like we are right here at home. If you participated in one of our past photo contests, that’s great! We’d love to see more of your photos this time. All you have to do is submit your favorite photo or photos which answer this question:…Continue Reading
