The Douglasville Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) is sponsoring an exciting new photo contest that highlights the best of Douglasville and Douglas County. The contest is entry free and open to picture takers of all ages. Photographers can submit up to two original high-quality photos in the categories of nature and wildlife, festivals and events, family fun and adventure, agriculture, arts and culture, parks and recreation, buildings and landscapes, seasons, and downtown Douglasville. Photographs with people are permitted.
The Visit Douglasville Photo Contest is designed to showcase Douglasville and Douglas County at its best to entice interest and attract visitors to the area. Contest photos will be posted on the Visit Douglasville Facebook page each quarter for voting, and the top three pictures with the most likes will be the winners. Photographs must be submitted by the last day of each third month to be entered in the current quarter’s contest. The contest’s first quarter months are July, August, and September; second quarter includes October, November, and December; the third quarter consists of January, February, and March; and the fourth quarter includes the months of April, May, and June. The Douglasville CVB is currently accepting submissions for the first quarter, and will announce the first set of winners the second week in October.
First place winners will receive a $50 Visa Gift Card, second place winners will win a $25 Visa Gift Card, and third place winners will receive a $25 gift card to a downtown Douglasville business. Each month’s first place winning photo will be featured as Visit Douglasville’s Facebook cover photo, and will be used as an official Visit Douglasville postcard. Additionally, first place winning photos will appear on the Visit Douglasville website, and in the Douglasville CVB’s quarterly newsletter. All winning photographs for first, second, and third places will be showcased at a photography art walk during National Travel and Tourism Week in May 2015.
Submissions must be in color and may be sent to the Douglasville CVB by mail or e-mail. If mailed, prints should be saved to a CD-R (Compact Disc-Recordable) and sent to: Douglasville CVB, 6694 East Broad Street, Douglasville, GA 30134.
