Patch Contest: Dreaming of Summer

Your favorite summer shot could land you a free sunset cruise from a local charter company.

Many of us battle the winter blues by projecting images of warmer days and making plans for the upcoming summer. Lucky for us, the last few weeks have been quite warm, but we plan to heat things up even more with our Dreaming of Summer contest by giving you a chance at a Patchy prize to look forward to this summer!

Patch and , a Bristol based charter business, wants to give you a free, private sunset/sight-seeing cruise for up to four people. Just think, warm rays of the sun and scenic, uninterrupted views of a waterfront sunset.

Here's how it works. Wipe the dust off of your summer vacation photo album and pick your favorite shot. It can be anything from a shot of the family vacation to the Grand Canyon, to a picture from your stay-cation of you and your friends lounging around sipping margaritas. Whatever it is, we want to see what you love about summer.

After you've chosen your picture, upload it to this article by noon on Sunday, April 15. Be sure to also email your name, age, hometown and phone number to our editor, Sara Bagwell, at Sara.Bagwell@patch.com, so that we will have your contact information should your photo be selected.

On Monday, April 16, a team of Patch judges will select our top five entries, then we will turn to you, the reader, to pick the top one. Readers will be able to vote for their favorite entry from Monday, April 16, to noon, April 23. The winner will then be announced Tuesay, April 24.

Rules: Users may only submit one photograph per person. Photos should not be digitally enhanced or otherwise changed (with the exception of exposure or contrast levels). For full contest rules, please see the attached pdf.
