Local photo contest aims to mark the fall season in the Youngstown area
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Mahoning County Convention & Visitors Bureau is asking people to share their photos of Youngstown for a chance to win a $ 50 gift card.
The “Snapshots of Youngstown” fall campaign encourages photographers to share their photos as they take advantage of the fall season in the region. Photos can be downloaded from the Convention and Visitors Office website.
The promotion will run from October 1 to November 14, 2021.
“There are many opportunities across Youngstown and Mahoning County to take advantage of all that the beautiful fall season has to offer,” said Linda Macala, CEO of CVB. “Take a hike, watch the foliage, watch a YSU football game, pick pumpkins and apples on a farm, or visit a fall market. If you need some inspiration for your entry, we’ll be posting a blog series with suggestions.
“During our winter 2021 campaign, we highlighted some of Youngstown’s popular restaurants with our gift card giveaway,” she continued. “This time we want to focus on some of Youngstown’s favorites like OH WOW! Children’s Center, Butter Maid Bakery, Mill Creek Golf Course, and White House Fruit Farm, to name a few.
Multiple entries are allowed for more chances of winning, but entrants can only win one gift card. Photos are to be taken in Mahoning County.
The photos will be used in future marketing to promote tours to Youngstown and Mahoning County.
Contest rules and additional information, including how to upload photos and the entry form, are available at www.youngstownlive.com/snapshotsofyoungstown.
