Get to know m.e., the regional image campaign that celebrates why people love living and working in the Metro East, announced a photo contest on social media for residents to show the many ways they love living in the Metro East through photographs.
The contest, identified with the hashtag #thisismymetroeast, asks residents to submit photos of themselves with their favorite person, place, thing or activity in the Metro East alongside a caption about what it is about that special thing that makes it “their” Metro East.
There will be a first-, second- and third-place winner. Each winner will receive a prize:
- First place will be a 42mm space gray aluminum case Apple Watch Sport with black sport band
- Second place will receive a $50 gift card to a local restaurant (winner’s choice)
- Third place will receive a Get to know m.e. swag bag
“This is just another way we can bring the community together, embrace each other and show support for an initiative that makes the Metro East a strong community,” campaign project manager Carol Bartle said.
The photo contest is another project funded by the campaign, which was launched to help everyone in the Metro East get to know their community better, embracing the people who live and work in the region and the many attractions residents share and enjoy.
Residents who want to participate in the contest must live in the Metro East. They can submit their photos online at http://www.get2knowthemetroeast.com/projects/photo-contest. Submissions will be collected until Nov. 30. There is no age limit for participants. Multiple entries are allowed. Voting for favorite photo will open up on Dec. 1 and will end on Dec. 15, and will be decided on by the public in a photo gallery at http://www.get2knowthemetroeast.com. The photos with the most votes will win.
The community is invited to help spread the word about the campaign and the #thisismymetroeast photo contest by following it on Facebook and liking and sharing the information with their friends. Residents and businesses are encouraged to take photos and submit their entries at www.get2knowthemetroeast.com/projects/photo-contest.
