Photo Contest will determine image on first ‘Clinton County Landmarks’ Puzzle Series
The Clinton County Visitors Bureau is creating a puzzle series featuring local landmarks, and the first puzzle will showcase one of the area’s most famous and most visited site, Hyner View.
A photo contest is underway to select the picture that will serve as the face of the puzzle. People are invited to submit high-quality, high-resolution photographs of Hyner View to the Visitors Bureau for consideration.
The deadline to submit photos is midnight on July 24, 2022.
“A Clinton County Landmarks Puzzle Series is an idea we’ve wanted to get off the ground for some time,” says Clinton County Economic Partnership Tourism Director Julie Brennan. “The Columbia-Montour Visitors Bureau has a popular puzzle series featuring their covered bridges, and they’ve been very helpful in sharing information. We’re excited to put our own spin on it and show off some of our amazing landmarks, and there’s no better place to start than with Hyner View.
“The pandemic caused a delay, but just this week we were able to finalize an agreement with a puzzle manufacturer,” says Brennan, adding, “We have a tight time-line, but our goal is to have the puzzle ready for the Pennsylvania State Flaming Foliage Festival weekend in mid-October, since Hyner View is a popular spot during our fall foliage weekend.”
Brennan says thousands of people snap pictures at Hyner View State Park, so the Visitors Bureau is hoping to get a lot of photo entries to consider. A panel of judges will review the photos and select the one that will appear on the puzzle. All of the photo submissions will add to the Visitors Bureau’s collection of photos and could potentially appear in other advertising and printed material.
To Submit Photos to the “Show Us Your Hyner” Photo Contest:
Email photos of Hyner View to email@example.com by midnight, Sunday, July 24, 2022. Entries must include the photographer’s name, address, telephone number and email address. Photos must be high-resolution (300dpi is recommended for best image on the 18” x 24” puzzle). People may submit up to four photographs (photos from any season are encouraged), and entries are welcome from everyone. There is no cost to submit photos.
All photographs must be owned by the person submitting them. By submitting, people are giving the Clinton County Visitors Bureau permission to use their photo as the 2022 puzzle and in future marketing efforts.
Photos will be reviewed by a panel of judges, who will take into consideration superior photo quality and composition. One entrant will be chosen to have their photo featured as the picture on the inaugural puzzle for the Clinton County Landmarks Puzzle Series.
The winning photographer will have their name and a short biography published on the puzzle box, and will also receive a complimentary puzzle.
