In Celebration of National Travel & Tourism Week
NORFOLK, Va. (April 25, 2013) – VisitNorfolk is asking the residents of Norfolk to share their favorite pictures of Norfolk sites and hidden gems by entering the images in the “Picture Perfect Photo Contest.” The online photo contest will begin May 1st and run through the month, with winners to be announced in June. The launch is part of VisitNorfolk’s recognition of National Travel & Tourism week, May 4th - 12th.
“This special week is how we recognize the positive impact of the tourism industry on our community,’ said Tony DiFilippo, president and CEO of VisitNorfolk. “And the Picture Perfect contest is a great way for folks in the area to show us what they love about Norfolk. Also, they are helping us tell the story of what’s great in our city to tourists.”
The Picture Perfect features special prizes such as an Apple iPad Mini, gift certificates to MacArthur Mall and more. The contest is divided into two categories:
• People – Images that focus primarily on individuals, family, friends.
• Places – Images that focus on the landscape, still life, and or locales within the city (with images of people less than 50% of the image).
The Picture Perfect photo contest is housed on VisitNorfolk’s Web site and Facebook page, allowing site visitors to view and comment on submissions. A Facebook account is required to participate.
