The Ouray Canyon Festival, Ouray Canyon Club, and the Ouray Chamber Resort Association (OCRA) need Ouray canyoning photos for promotional literature related to Ouray Canyoning and adventure tourism. So we are having a photo contest.
Take lots of photos during the festival. AFTER the festival, pick your favorites and upload them to the festival meetup group photo album titled, "2012 Ouray Canyon Festival Photo Contest". A panel of judges will select several finalists. Finalist photos will be copied to the Ouray Canyon Festival Facebook page for final voting. Votes will be based on the number of "likes" each photo receives. Yes, you can encourage your spouse, kids, mom, aunts and uncles, friends and neighbors to vote for your photos.
We will award a $50 gift card to Ouray Mountain Sports (store merchandise is available on-line) to the owner of the photo receiving the most votes.
Yes , we expect to have the right to use submitted photos in promotional literature and videos.
All photos must be submitted by midnight August 25.
