And the Winner of Newton Patch's Facebook Cover Photo Contest is...

You told us which photo you think best represents Newton (and Newton Patch).

We asked, you answered and we received some great entries to our Newton Patch Facebook page cover photo contest. 

The voting closed at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 21, and the winner: a striking photo of a tree at sunset, taken by (or at least uploaded by) Maria Olga Isaza.

Congratulations, Maria: your winning submission will receive a $50 gift card plus bragging rights that their photo is the top of our Facebook page! Maria, just contact Newton Patch editor Melanie Graham to tell us where to send your gift card.

Thank you everyone for your submissions, and check out our Facebook page to see Maria's Newton Patch cover photo!

Please remember to read the contest rules in the .pdf to the right.

All these images, while nice, are fairly generic nature scenes. Where are the pictures of Newton City Hall, or the Public Library, or even Echo Bridge? Those images say "Newton."

Hi Les -- We opened this photo contest for all last week (Monday-Friday) and encouraged readers to upload their favorite photos of Newton. These are the submissions that we received from our readers and therefore, the images that are up for a vote for our next Facebook cover photo.

I like the pic of the sunset with large tree in the center but I do agree with Les that no picture screens Newton.
