Photos may be submitted online, via email and in person to the CVB. All photos submitted should be 300dpi, with the exception of the mobile category.

The photo contest is a juried competition. Photos chosen by the jurors will be displayed in an exhibition at the Cole Art Center Nov. 17 through Jan. 14. Three overall winners will be selected and will receive cash prizes along with an honorable mention for each category. Winners will be announced at the opening reception held from 6-8 p.m. at the Cole Art Center located at 329 E. Main Street. A People’s Choice award will be selected by participants attending the Nov. 17 reception.

“The photo contest is a great opportunity for the CVB to partner with the Cole Art Center, to feature local talent and to build upon the CVB’s library of images that will be used to showcase our destination as a film friendly city, and for other promotional purposes such as the CVB’s website and social media, just to name a few,” said Sherri Skeeters, marketing director for the Nacogdoches CVB.
