Auburn-Opelika tourism’s annual photo contest began June 1


Special to the
Opelika Observer

Auburn-Opelika Tourism’s annual AO Photo Contest opened on June 1 and will end on Aug. 31. Professional and amateur photographers of all skill levels are invited to submit up to three photos taken in Auburn or Opelika.

One talented winner will be selected to win a $500 gift card to Cameragraphics or the Auburn-Opelika business of their choice, subject to restrictions. Photos will be judged on four aspects: originality, creativity, overall artistic appeal and local emphasis. Photo content can include, but is not limited to, landscapes, architecture, activities, portraits and wildlife.

To enter, visit and submit your photo(s). There is no entry fee. The contest is open to all photographers, amateur and professional. You do not have to live in the area to participate. Photos do not have to be taken in a particular time frame; as long as the photo was taken in the area, it doesn’t matter when it was taken.

Note: Submitted photos might be used in future marketing materials. We will give full credit to the artist, but please leave off watermarks.
