The Contest Details
We are looking for the best photos involving the CityArt Walking Sculpture Tour as determined by our judges and, for the People’s Choice prize, our fans on Facebook. Judges will be using creative criteria to choose photos with the best artistic merit and interpretation. We are looking for photos that are in good taste and show a positive reflection of the City Center. We will accept photos taken by you or photos of you. However, since photos of you are usually taken by someone else, you must have their consent to use the picture that you submit. No purchase is necessary to enter or win the Contest.
In entering the Contest you subject yourself to both the Contest Rules and Legal Terms and Conditions. By submitting images to the Contest, you are deemed to have reviewed, read and accepted both.
