Tortuga Wins OceanFirst 2015 Community Calendar Contest

Earlier this year we had posted about our five entries into the OceanFirst 2015 Community Calendar Contest. We are happy to announce that one of our photos, “The Warmth of Winter”, had been selected to be featured in this coming year’s Community Calendar!

Here it is the winning photograph:

Suggested themes for the contest were seasonal scenes of familiar local landmarks, beaches, oceans or lakes within Ocean, Monmouth and Middlesex counties. A panel of judges comprised of OceanFirst Bank officers were randomly selected and photos were judged on composition, quality and suitability.

Here is the letter we recently received from OceanFirst Bank:

Dear Mrs. Connors,

On behalf of OceanFirst Bank I would like to thank you for you entry in our 2015 Calendar Contest. We are pleased to inform you that your entry, titled: “THE WARMTH OF WINTER” has been selected to be featured in this year’s Community Calendar.

Please be on the lookout in late November for your 10 complimentary copies of our calendar for you to enjoy and to share with family and friends.

Thank you for your participation and I wish you much success in the future.

Lisa Natale
Vice President, Senior Marketing Officer
