2019 Contest in full swing
March 15, 2019
For immediate release
Get your cameras ready and your creative juices flowing! Submit your best photos of our great county in our 3rd Annual Capture Coffey County Photo Contest.
Coffey County Economic Development is searching for photos that capture the essence of our county and welcome visitors to “Come Explore Our Energy”.
The first two years of the contest, over 180 photos were submitted through this contest and a majority of photos are now featured on the Coffey County website and various tourism advertisements.
“The contest is back and this year’s theme is ‘The BEST of Coffey County’,” said Stacy Haines, Coffey County Economic Development Director. “We want to see through the lens of our community members what they see as the best in all our communities. We encourage you all to get out into the community and let your creativity flow.”
Sponsored by Coffey County Economic Development, this contest is open to Coffey County residents only. All entries must be received by July 31, 2019.
Winners will be awarded in two divisions (adult and youth) judged by community members. Additionally, we added a People’s Choice category and will utilize social media for voting.
First Place winners in the adult and youth divisions will receive $50 in Chamber Bucks and 2nd Place will receive $25 in Chamber Bucks. The People’s Choice Winner in each age group will win $50 in Chamber Bucks.
Coffey County Chamber Bucks can be used at participating county businesses. For more information on Chamber Bucks, contact the Coffey County Chamber of Commerce.
Photos submitted may be selected for various promotional uses for Coffey County, including the website, regional and state publications, and social media. Photo credit will be given to the photographer when possible and when the photo credit doesn’t infringe on the overall promotional message.
