Best of Riverton Photo Contest Back for Second Year
Following excellent community participation in 2018, Riverton City is again hosting the Best of Riverton Photo Contest, this year between June 1 and July 31. The goal of the contest is to collect photo submissions that tell the city’s story, which will then be used in future city marketing and communications materials to highlight varying aspects of life and landscape in Riverton.
“No one knows what life is like in Riverton better than our residents,” said City Councilwoman Tish Buroker. “We would like to encourage all of our residents to consider submitting photo entries that reflect aspects of life in our beautiful city. We want to see those fun family moments, those beautiful sunsets and sunrises, and all the exciting events we have here captured in photo.”
A first, second and third place winner will be selected from submissions following the contest conclusion on July 31. First place will receive a $300 cash prize, with $200 for second place, and $100 for third place. All three winning photos will be featured on the city’s website and social media pages with attribution. The winning photos will also be featured with attribution in the city’s email newsletter and hung in either Riverton City Hall or the Sandra N. Lloyd Community Center. Additionally, contest winners will be recognized at a city council meeting.
“Almost everyone has excellent cameras right in their pocket these days, making it really easy to participate,” Buroker said. “You don’t need to be a professional photographer to participate. Just remember to capture those picturesque moments over the next two months and submit them as entries into the contest.”
Photos must be taken in Riverton to be eligible for consideration, though both residents and non-residents may participate. Individuals may submit up to 10 photos in the contest. It is anticipated contest winners will be announced between mid-August and mid-September. Entry details, as well as contest rules and conditions, can be found at rivertoncity.com/photocontest.
