"Picturing the Good Life" photo contest gearing up
"Picturing the Good Life" is the theme of a new photo contest that will soon be accepting photographs and short videos of the Wadena area. This collection of images will be used for promoting our region to others. Complete contest guidelines will be available as well as a site where photos and videos can be uploaded. One of the best photo opportunities of the year is here right now and it should not be missed. Everyone is encouraged to begin getting your shots even before the contest is fully posted. You will have until April 30, 2018, to take and send in your video and photos.
While images from previous years will also be accepted, we don't want to miss the chance for photos from this Fall. There will be cash awards ranging from $25 to $100 for best images accepted for the collection. Watch for the formal announcement and website address which should be available in a few weeks.
"Picturing the Good Life" is a project of the Wadena Area Chamber of Commerce which recently received a grant from Region 5 Branding Project, funded by the National Joint Powers Alliance. Contact the Wadena Area Chamber of Commerce, the Wadena County Historical Society or Email email@example.com if you have questions.
