We were pleased to see so many friends at the annual Networking event on November 22nd, where we announced the new marketing initiaives underway to expand business in Fulton County.

And it was with great pride that we announced 23-year old Northville resident Trevor Junquera as the winner of our amateur photo contest. Junquera’s winning entry was a photograph of the Chamber of Commerce building in Gloversville, entitled “Chamber of Commerce.” Another of his photos, “Johnstown Sunset,” was among the six finalists selected by CRG and our marketing agency Shannon-Rose Design.

The amateur photography contest was launched this summer and was open to people ages 12 to 25 who have attended or are attending a school in Fulton County. Finalists were selected based on both the content and the quality of their original photography. The goal was to celebrate Fulton County through images that showcase the good hearts of our people and the seeds of economic vitality that will ultimately enable us to restore our downtowns and grow our economy.

Fulton County Center for Regional Growth president Mike Reese presented Junquera with the prize — a high definition digital EOS Rebel T3 camera with 180-55 IS lens. “I’m just happy to be a part of this,” Junquera told the Leader Herald. “I think it’s great [the CRG] is increasing the inbound marketing with Facebook and blogging because it all gets people to the area and to visit their website and I’m proud to be a part of that.”
