Gellman Images Captures Creative Works of Art
at the 22nd Annual NJ Sandcastle Contest

BELMAR, NJ (July 23, 2008) - The New Jersey Sandcastle Contest today announced that Gellman Images, a leading photography company that provides an array of imaging services in the Tri-State area, served as a sponsor and official photographer at the 22nd Annual New Jersey Sandcastle Contest. This year’s event was held at Belmar’s 18th Avenue Beach on Wednesday, July 9. Participants of all ages were invited to build their own unique creation from New Jersey’s finest sand, known to be ideal for sculpting.

“While the different sandcastles and various sand creations have already been washed or raked away, thanks to Gellman Images the memories made and images will be preserved forever,” explained Domenick Cilea, president of Springboard Public Relations, coordinators of the event for the past 9 years.

Gellman Images served as both sponsor and prize donor by providing one of the grand prizes of an expansive in-studio portrait package. In addition, firm principal Gary Gellman also volunteered to photograph the event. Since 2005, Gary has been the official photographer of the event and has offered his services pro bono to support one of the Jersey shore’s largest summer events. Additionally, Gellman Images donated a photo package that was utilized for the event’s prize fund.

Thanks to Gellman Images and other event sponsors, the 22nd Annual Sandcastle Contest was the most successful in the history of the event drawing more than 11,000 people who swarmed several blocks of Belmar beach to watch more then 300 participants in six different categories work to claim the title of Best on Beach.

Mr. Gellman’s photos of the 2008 event is available for viewing here.
