The Tyler Convention & Visitors Bureau sponsors an annual amateur photography contest during every Azalea Trail. Cash prizes are awarded and the winner’s photo may be used in future brochures and websites! So, don’t forget that camera!!
Photo Contest Prizes:
Grand Prize: $200
First Runner-Up: $100
Second Runner-Up: $25
Plus, there will be up to three (3) weekly winners chosen from photos submitted on Instagram using the hashtag #AzaleaPhotoContest. The weekly winners will receive gift certificates of varying amounts to Tyler businesses, restaurants, and/or attractions.
The grand prize, first runner-up, and second runner-up will be determined by popular fan vote. Judges selected by Tyler CVB staff will narrow the field of eligible photos from the Azalea Trail Photo Contest to the top 5. The 5 finalists are the photos that will be voted on by the public for the grand prize, first runner-up, and second runner-up. Voting will take place on the Tyler Azalea Trail Facebook page only, regardless of the means of Contest entry. The voting period will begin following the photograph submission period (People’s choice voting begins April 11, 2014 at 8am CST). Voting will close April 18, 2014 at 10am CST.
