St. Eustatius- -Twelve lucky winners of the EUTEL "FACES AND PLACES" photo competition were selected to have their photographs featured in the EUTEL 2011 calendar.
In collaboration with EUTEL, IMC (Innovative Marketing Creations) launched the "Faces and Places of Statia" Photo Competition where it was EUTEL’s mission not to only exemplify itself as St. Eustatius’ premiere Telecommunications provider but as the link that connects the culture, history and people of St Eustatius to one another.
EUTEL’s Interim Managing Director was quoted stating that "EUTEL has received great feedback from the local community, and would like to sincerely congratulate the winners of the photo competition and the general public for their participation in this community event."
Amongst the winners were, toddler Nereida Tatem, who managed to walk away as the top finalist for the "Faces" category by capturing the hearts of the voters with her infant smile and Mr. Jonathan Jensen who received the highest score for his photograph of a local iguana, indigenous to St. Eustatius in the "Places" category. Additional winners for the "Places" of Statia were Monet Warren, Hannah Madden, Micheal Greff, Dagmar Paulus and Lindsay Hendson. Winners of the "Faces" of Statia were Don Kenneth Mitchell, Minoushka Woodley, Davon Lopes, Eardley Woodley and Makeba Mitchell. Ms. Elske Gibbs also struck luck as a voter who walked away with a Quad band cell phone.
The 1st runner-ups for both the "Faces" as well as the "Places" categories will receive a Blackberry Smartphone courtesy of EUTEL; runner ups will receive prizes such as video cameras, digital cameras, Quad band cell phones and Radio-clock-calendar- digital picture frames giving all these individuals the opportunity to continue creating lasting memories of Statia and their loved ones.
IMC Marketing Assistant Milouschka Euson commented that "IMC and EUTEL are proud to provide the people of Statia with a product for the people of Statia by the people of Statia. The participation of the local community surpassed expectations and resulted in a wonderful collection of Statia’s artwork which will be developed into a memorable calendar that St. Eustatius can appreciate."
Residents of Statia were encouraged to submit their photos of the best historic or culturally prominent "Places" in St. Eustatius, or vote for the "Faces" of Statia who give the best representation of EUTEL as a company. Together these photos will be featured in EUTEL’s 2011 calendar that will be handed out to EUTEL clients during the month of December as a token of appreciation during the festive holidays.
The competition lasted approximately one month and ended on October 22, 2010. EUTEL was able to build upon their customer relationship, further increasing the company’s commitment to the history, culture and people of Statia by involving the local residents in this event.
