The second annual Times photo contest launched on July 12, and this time around, the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau (publisher of 20×49.com) is joining in the fun. Specifically, we’ll be helping with the judging and also – most importantly! – we’ll be gathering up lots of great prizes that folks who submit photos can win. The grand prize winner will receive a staycation package including prizes from Boomtown Casino Bossier City, Battle of the Gumbo Gladiators, Red River Revel Arts Festival, Flying Heart Brewing, TINSEL: A Chauffeured Shopping Experience and more. Other prizes include gift certificates to local restaurants including Fully Stacked, Bon Asian Café and Sassi Café, free admission passes to Splash Kingdom Waterpark Shreveport and more. Watch The Times’ video for more information on the contest.
In addition, winners of the photo contest will see their work published in print and also on digital billboards throughout Shreveport-Bossier.
Entering the photo contest is simple. Just e-mail a .JPEG of your photo, along with your name and the title of your photograph, to HWildsmith@gannett.com. Please write “Photo Contest” in the subject line of your e-mail. The Times will take it from there! Photos must be submitted before midnight on July 30 in order to be eligible for the contest.
The theme of this year’s contest is “Be a Fan of Shreveport-Bossier”, so we’re asking you to send in photos that show what makes you feel proud of this community. Show us your favorite places, people, meals, experiences – hit us with your best snapshot of life in Shreveport-Bossier. This community really is filled with great photographers; we hope that some of you will submit photos for the contest. Someone’s got to win all of these prizes!
