Amateur and professional photographers have the opportunity to submit photos that demonstrate the lifestyle, beauty and assets in Wicomico County for Wicomico County Tourism’s 2016 Photo Contest.
Photos can be of anything taken in Wicomico County in the past two years, although some suggested topics include nature & the outdoors, culture, shopping, food & drink, wineries & breweries, festivals & events and history. The contest is open to U.S. residents 18 and older.
The first place prize is $500 and the winner’s photograph displayed on the Wicomico Tourism website, in a Wicomico Tourism e-newsletter and in Wicomico County Tourism’s 2017 Visitor’s and Relocation Guide. Second place and third place winners will be awarded $250 and $100, respectively, with the winning photographs displayed on the tourism website and in the guide.
New this year is a people’s choice aspect of the contest, where users can vote on their favorite entries. The winner of this division will earn $250 and the opportunity for his or her photograph to be displayed on the Wicomico Tourism website and in the visitor’s guide.
Entries will be accepted until September 1 at 5 p.m.
The launch of the photo contest coincides with the launch of a new website for Wicomico County Tourism. The updated website has been redesigned to be more visual, streamlined and user-friendly than the previous site.
Visitors to the site will be able to easily learn about the county’s attractions, accommodations and events.
