#GiveLocalBay Photo Contest


#GiveLocalBay Photo Contest

In celebration of the SIXTH year of Give Local Bay, a 24-hour online giving day that supports the work of local nonprofits, Bay Area Community Foundation is hosting a photo contest. We want to see what YOU love about our beautiful Bay and Arenac counties.

Give us your best shot! What do you love most about this area? The #GIVELOCALBAY Photo Contest is looking for your photos that best capture the spirit of these counties. Show us photos of natural landscapes, beautiful landmarks, community events and activities, local nonprofits fulfilling their mission, or the amazing people working hard to make a difference.

We will use the winning photos for Bay Area Community Foundation marketing materials (including promoting Give Local Bay on May 5, 2020). The winner will be able to select a participating Give Local Bay nonprofit to receive a prize of $250—the first prize of the event!

Photo Submissions:

Submit your favorite Bay or Arenac county photos from February 26 – March 11.

Individuals must be at least 18 years of age and may submit up to two (2) photos.

Entries accepted online via our online form.

We will narrow the photographs down to no more than 12 finalists for the public to vote on starting March 16 at 9 a.m. and running until March 19 at 9 a.m.

Note: Your photo submission authorizes Bay Area Community Foundation to use your image in marketing materials. No compensation will be provided for the use of photos other than the prize awards outlined below. Photo credit opportunities may apply but are at the discretion of the Bay Area Community Foundation.
