City of Columbia’s Social Media Photo Challenge
The City of Columbia’s social media photo challenge, #LoveColumbia, will be accepting submissions May 1 -31, 2015. #LoveColumbia invites the citizens of Columbia to submit photos of what they love about the City. The purpose of this initiative is to increase community engagement, expand public knowledge of the City’s social media sites, and increase the use of technology to interact with citizens.
The #LoveColumbia photo challenge is open to local residents and photos must be taken within the City of Columbia limits. The photos can display images of landscapes, structures, buildings, historical monuments, etc. that represent citizens’ love for Columbia. The hashtag, “#LoveColumbia,” must be included on all submissions to be considered for entry.
To participate, citizens can submit photos or vote for their favorites by visiting the following social media sites:
Submissions will be accepted now through May 31, 2015. The public will be able to vote on their favorite photos from June 1 – 7, 2015. The top three users with the most votes on each site will be entered into the second round, and a panel of invested members of the City’s art community will select the winning photo for each site. The winners will be announced June 2015.
The winning photos will be featured in the City of Columbia’s Annual Report to the Community, with a bio and photo of each winner.
