Independence Photo Challenge – Win a 42″ HDTV!

To celebrate Grenada’s 37th year of Independence, Real Value IGA is holding our first ever Independence Photo Challenge!

This is no ordinary photo contest. Your photos should capture the unique spirit of the Grenadian people or Grenada in general. The twist is, that your photos must feature an IGA brand product somewhere in the shot. This is an excellent chance to have a little fun and get creative.

You may submit up to 3 photos during the submission phase (January 28th 2011 – February 15th 2011) by either emailing them to, or by dropping them off on a CD at our Customer Service desk. Submissions must be accompanied by the participant’s name, address, and contact number.

At the end of the submission phase, submitted photos will be added to an album on the Company’s Facebook Page for judging by our Facebook members. A shortlist of 10 will go on to the final judging phase.

You could walk away with a 42″ 720p Panasonic Plasma HDTV!
