Walgreens Sponsors Prettiest Places Photo Contest

Walgreens (located at the corner of Harrison and St. Louis streets in Batesville) has announced it will sponsor the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce Prettiest Places Photo Contest.  In addition to recognition on the BACC’s website and Facebook page, the winner of the contest will receive a free 11 x 14 or 16 x 20 print of their photograph from the Walgreens photo department.  The top ten submissions will receive a free 8 x 10 print.

The Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce is calling for photo submissions of the prettiest places throughout the Batesville area.  The Batesville area includes a large region, which spans from Newport to Mountain View and Ash Flat to Bald Knob.  Photo submissions are limited to scenic and historic places, and must include a brief description and location information regarding the photographed place.  The Batesville Area Chamber will accept submissions through August 31, 2013.  Once submissions are made, the photographs will be posted to Facebook and displayed at Walgreens for a viewers’ vote.  Voters will be asked to choose the top ten prettiest places.  The photograph to receive the most votes will be given special recognition on the tourism page of the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce website and don the title “Batesville Area Prettiest Place of 2013.”

Please submit digital photos in a JPEG or PDF format to danell.hetrick@mybatesville.org.  Physical photos will be accepted, but will not be returned and may be subject to another shoot for posting purposes.  Please send physical photos to: Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce/Attn: Danell Hetrick/409 Vine St./Batesville, AR 72501.
