Welcome to our contest page!
Good luck with your entry!
The only contest currently open is our 2017 Photo Contest. Deadline for entry is Friday, September 29, 2017. The winner will be notified by email within seven days of the close for entries.
The winner will collect a $250 cash prize, have their submitted photo featured in the Chamber’s resource guide and other printed marketing pieces, on their website, and in social media. A panel of Chamber members will decide the winner.
We are looking for the best photos of the fun, frolic, and iconic buildings and scenery, from this place we call “Oregon’s Coastal Playground,” so we’re looking for outstanding amateur or professional photos that convey our coastal playground theme. Photos from in town, around town, and from the natural areas within 20 to 25 miles of Florence will be eligible.
The best photos will express how great a destination Florence is for vacationing.
So download your best photos from you smartphone or camera and send us your highest resolution photos showing the best of our area’s scenery, iconic buildings and natural locations, and with you and your family and friends having fun here in Oregon’s Coastal Playground.
The contest is open to Florence area residents and visitors from all over the world. Amateurs and professionals alike are encouraged to enter. Entrants under the age of 18 must have permission of a parent or guardian. Portrait-oriented photos stand the best chance of being used in print media, though landscape-oriented photos are just as encouraged.
By entering the contest, contestants state they have ownership and rights to submit the photo, that the photo is free of encumbrance by other entities, and by entering give the Chamber unlimited rights for the use of photos in its publicity and marketing materials. Entrants do not give up exclusive rights for future use of the photos for their own private use.
To enter, complete the entry form on this page. Entrants must also provide signed waivers (see photo release form below) granting the Chamber permission to use the image or likeness of anyone included in the photo.
The photographer will be credited any time a photo credit is possible. Photos must be submitted with the photographer’s name, approximate date of photo, and location. Ideal photos will be in .jpg format, color, vertical in orientation (but horizontal will be accepted). We prefer 1920×1080 pixels, and 8MB, if possible. If the photo is more than 10MB in file size, contestants can email Contest@FlorenceChamber.com for a Dropbox URL through which to share the entry. Photos selected for use must not have watermarks, and will require a signed release by the photographer and any recognizable persons in the photo.
If you have questions you may call 541-997-3128, or email Contest@FlorenceChamber.com.
