Southern Pine Electric is seeking residents to submit old and new photographs of members, homes and businesses within Southern Pine’s service area for a chance to get published in the upcoming limited edition book from 1938 – 2017.

The book is scheduled for release in November of 2018 and will feature 160 pages of Southern Pine’s history. The book will be filled with 250 photographs submitted by readers.

Photo prints are preferred. All size prints will be accepted. Multiple entries are encouraged but all entries must be accompanied by a completed entry form and entry pieces must be clearly identified.

Photocopies of the form will be accepted.

According to officials with Southern Pines, it is important to have the location of the picture and identification of people clearly marked. A 25-word caption about the picture and its history of the area is also offered.

Due to the limited number of photos used for the book, all photos will be reviewed and final selection will be at the discretion of Southern Pine Electric and The Donning Company Publishers.
