1ST PLACE WINNER
Margo Constable - Idledale, Colorado
For this stunning shot of the Woodstock Hummer Chime and its little friend, Margo received a Woodstock Gregorian Baritone Chime.
Margo writes: "I had a lot of fun taking my chime to different locations near where I live and trying to get a good shot. And of my eight entries, you chose the photo where it normally hangs - just outside of my door!
As much as I love to be outside, this was taken from our living room sofa. With several feeders and potted flowers to attract birds to the deck, a curious little female paused in mid-flight for a few seconds to check out one of her own kind."
2ND PLACE WINNER
Karen Richardson - Bancroft, Ontario - Canada
For this wonderful shot of "Tyler's Chime" aka Woodstock Chimes for Autism, Karen received a Woodstock Gregorian Tenor Chime.
Karen writes: Of all the chimes on our lake home property, the Chime for Autism is my favourite. I am a retired teacher and have worked with many children with Autism. They are engaging and rewarding children to teach. Tyler Doi was a student at my school and this chime has a special place in my heart as a fond reminder of him and other students with Autism. Tyler's chime (as it is known here!) hangs at the water edge and rings out across our property and on the water. When looking out through the morning mist or listening to its delightful notes with a gentle lake breeze, this chime for Autism creates memorable moments for me, my family and visitors to our lake home. Thank you for this beautiful chime, and your dedication and support of Autism, in particular your special relationship with Tyler and his family.

Stephanie Fairbanks - Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California
For this relaxed picture of her cat enjoying the music of a Woodstock Chime, Stephanie received a Woodstock Gregorian Alto Chime.
Stephanie writes: I’ll never forget the first time I heard a Woodstock chime. Many years ago, I was a fundraiser for a non-profit in Boston. One summer day, while going door-to-door in a lovely rural area of Massachusetts, I heard the most beautiful collage of sounds floating through the air. A crisp, clean, truly heavenly collection of musical notes called me towards it. I found the source of the auditory nirvana hanging from the porch of a sweet little house that was being guarded by a Maine Coon cat sitting on the steps. After ringing the doorbell and finding no one home to solicit, I moved on to the next house. However, the chimes lured me back, and instead of finishing my fundraising route, I sat on that porch with the cat in my lap, listening to the wonder of those Woodstock chimes, for over an hour. It’s been 25 years since that day, and still one of my favorite things to do is to sit on the patio with my own Maine Coon cat and simply listen to my Woodstock chimes. This photo represents those moments that remind me how fortunate I am, how good life is, and how the world is a better place with Woodstock chimes singing in its wind.
