The City of Las Vegas wants professional and amateur photographers alike to capture the city in a new photo contest.
The contest is being sponsored by the city, the Downtown Las Vegas Alliance, Symphony Park and the Las Vegas Review Journal. There will be three categories.
- Lifestyle: photographs that feature the way people live and work in downtown.
- Stars: pictures of the interesting people that populate the area.
- Icons: photographs of the buildings and landmarks that make up the city scape.
The contest will be judged by professional photographers. The winners will be announced in October during a lecture at the Historic Fifth Street School. The winning photographs will be on display at various bars, restaurants and businesses in the downtown area. Besides just the honor of being on display for all to see, the winners will receive a variety of prizes including complementary drinks and meals plus gift certificates for downtown businesses.
All photographs will need to be submitted digitally by August 15 and you must be 21 or older to participate. To submit go to Downtown Las Vegas Alliance Website.
