2017 Photo Contest

Click HERE to download your registration packet. 

[Photos must be 3MB or larger to be accepted.]

 

The Monroe-West Monroe Convention & Visitors Bureau (MWMCVB) and Bayou Life Magazine are partnering once again to host their 10th Annual Photo Contest. Prizes for the contest total $875, and the photograph that wins Best of Show will be featured on the cover of BayouLife magazine.

 

The theme is “Ouachita Moments.” Submit your perspective of moments that can only happen in Ouachita Parish. Whether you are sitting by the bayou or hanging out with your friends on Antique Alley, we want to see what you see. Photos could also include your favorite restaurant or menu item, favorite local shop, art gallery, architecture, event, or anything that describes life in Monroe-West Monroe.

Last year, the MWMCVB received over 110 entries in the photo contest. Many of those entries, as well as past entries, have been featured in national advertisements and other materials, including the popular Visitors Guide, to promote the Monroe-West Monroe area.

First, Second, and Third Prizes will be awarded. Winners will be announced at a special Tourism Industry event in May.

 

The MWMCVB will begin accepting submissions on April 1. The deadline to enter is April 28 at 5:00 p.m. Please submit photos in digital format, along with the registration form, to Jerrica Bennett at jbennett@monroe-westmonroe.org. Photos must be taken within the past two years and in Ouachita Parish to be eligible. Images that include people must be accompanied by a signed Model Release Form that is included in the Registration Packet.

For questions, contact Jerrica Bennett at jbennett@monroe-westmonroe or (318) 387-5691.
