Outer Banks, NC (PRWEB) July 24, 2014
Village Realty is pleased to announce that the 2014 Outer Banks Photo and Video Contest is underway, encouraging shutterbugs of all skill levels to enter. “We’re hoping that a wide range of photographs and videos will be submitted” says Jeannie Maynard, Village Realty’s social media coordinator. “We’re not looking for professional photographers and perfect pictures, but are hoping to find images that capture the true spirit of the Outer Banks.” She adds, “They can even upload something that they’ve taken with their cell phone, and in fact many people do just that.” The contest presents entrants with 12 photo categories and one video category within which to submit their original work. All submissions must have been taken on the Outer Banks, but may come from any time period. Contestants must enter through Village Realty’s Outer Banks Photo Contest Facebook page at http://goo.gl/wN7VVV.
The top winners for “Best Photo” and “Best Video” will be awarded the grand prize of a FREE off-season week in a Village Realty property (3 bedroom/2 bath, with an upgrade possible). There will also be a runner up prize awarded for both top categories, consisting of a FREE off-season, two-night stay in a Village Realty property (or at Nags Head’s historic First Colony Inn). Category winners will receive a prize chosen by contest officials, which will be selected from an assortment of gift certificates for local shopping and dining, as well as Village Realty gift certificates and more!
In addition to competing in Village Realty’s photo and video contest, the best-of-the-best photos and videos may be selected and used in Village Realty’s advertising. Low resolution photos are preferred for web advertising. However, to be considered for use in print advertising, the photos must be submitted in high resolution. Both landscape orientation and portrait orientation are encouraged. Finalists will be chosen through a selection process conducted by members of Village Realty’s Outer Banks Photo Contest committee. To narrow down the winners, the committee will take into consideration the expertise of local, professional photographers as well as the input from the contest’s Facebook participants. Grand prize winners and runner ups will be selected through a company-wide vote by all Village Realty employees. Last day to enter photos and videos is September 8, 2014 at midnight.
