Enter our October Contest!

Submit photos of your kids making special hockey memories to GottaLoveCTHockey's photo of the month contest. Please include:
  • Photo title and caption
  • Players' first names
  • CT Hockey Conference program and team level (e.g. Enfield Squirt A, Darien Pee Wee B)
  • Your full name
  • Your connection to the team (i.e. Parent, Coach, Manager, Grandparent)

Photos should capture a moment or emotion that makes our viewers think "that's why I love CT hockey!"

In addition to your team being entered into the running to win a Greg Wood Photography photo package, your photo could be featured in a GottaLoveCTHockey episode and on our Facebook page.

Submission deadline for the October Photo of the Month contest is Friday, October 19.
Photos will be evaluated as to their ability to capture a moment or emotion that makes viewers think "that's why I love CT hockey" and aspects of quality such as focus and appropriate cropping.

From all photos submitted, GottaLoveCTHockey and Greg Wood Photography staff will choose up to four finalists monthly based upon the aforementioned criteria and representative of multiple CT Hockey programs and age levels. You may enter multiple photos, but not more than one photo per entrant will be selected as a finalist. Finalists must demonstrate a verifiable connection to a CT Hockey Conference program.

The monthly winner will be the photo receiving the most votes in a public online survey.

Finalists and winners will be notified via email. The team coach and/or manager will be contacted directly to coordinate the photo shoot prize.
