Public Invited to Participate in City's Best of Riverton Photo Contest
RIVERTON, UT – Riverton City has launched the “Best of Riverton Photo Contest” with the goal of having residents capture, in photo, the very best the city has to offer. The contest, which runs through August 3, is divided into three categories: live, work/service and play. Photos from the contest will be used to tell Riverton’s story in the city’s future marketing and communications efforts.
“Citizen involvement is a priority for the city,” said Councilwoman Tricia Tingey. “We want residents to be able to have a hand in telling Riverton’s story by participating in the photo contest.”
An overall contest winner will be selected from the submissions, in addition to winners for each category. The contest winner will receive a $300 cash award, and category winners will each receive a $100 award. The winners will be recognized at a city council meeting and the winning photos will be hung, with attribution, in City Hall and posted on the city’s social media accounts.
“You don’t have to be a professional photographer to participate,” said Casey Saxton, director of communications. “We want to capture what life is like in Riverton, whether you take photos with a professional camera, drone or phone. Our hope is that folks will get out into the community and take and submit photos of all-things Riverton.”
Entry details, as well as contest rules and conditions, can be found at rivertoncity.com/photocontest.
