“No one can resist taking pictures in New York City, so we thought it would be fun to create a contest that would reward people’s photographic efforts,” states Michael Silberstein, General Manager of the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 20, 2012
A picture is not only worth a thousand words, but a free two-night weekend stay in New York City, courtesy of the Your Favorite NY Moment Photo Contest just launched by the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan. The new contest, the first of its kind for the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan, is open to amateur and professional photographers alike and of any age.* And photogs can submit as many images of their favorite Big Apple moments as they like, no purchase necessary, by simply going to the Home page of the hotel’s Web site at http://www.cpmanhattantimessquare.com and clicking on the More Info button under the Win a Free Weekend Stay Heading. They just need to do so by the 6 a.m., April 15 deadline for entries. The winner will be announced on April 30, 2012.
In addition to the free weekend at the amenity loaded 795-room hotel, the winner will have the rare opportunity of seeing his or her picture play a part in the world famous Times Square light show – it will be displayed on the front of the Crowe Plaza Times Square Manhattan on its giant 23 by 34 foot screen during the stay.
“No one can resist taking pictures in New York City, so we thought it would be fun to create a contest that would reward people’s photographic efforts,” states Michael Silberstein, General Manager of the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan. “We already have more than 40 entries, from shots of honeymoon moments to running across the Verrazano Bridge during the New York City Marathon.”
A continually updated gallery of the entries is available via that More Info button under the Win a Free Weekend Stay heading at http://www.cpmanhattantimessquare.com/ so Your Favorite NY Moment Photo Contest participants can check out the competition.
