Maybe you have already taken a photo of your favorite place in Iowa. If you have not, grab your camera and take that shot and enter it in Keep Iowa Beautiful’s 8th Photography Contest aimed at raising awareness of Iowa’s rural and urban beauty. This photo contest offers both amateur and experienced photographers an opportunity to tell Iowa’s story in a fun, engaging way during your favorite season.


“This is a great way for ‘Iowa lovers’ to share what they like about Iowa,” said Gerry Schnepf, KIB Executive Director. “First place will receive $50, second place $25. Both will receive a one-year subscription to Pioneer Publishing’s The Iowan magazine.”


The deadline is December 15, 2017 and entries must be submitted as high resolution JPEG electronically to bjackson@keepiowabeautiful.com . $5 entry fee, contest rules and payment can be made at https://www.keepiowabeautiful.com/photography-contest-entry/


Keep Iowa Beautiful empowers Iowans to bring cultural and economic vitality into communities through improvement and enhancement programs. By working directly with Iowa communities, corporations and private citizens, KIB is building new citizen pride in caring for Iowa. KIB wants to learn what resonates with Iowans based on the photographs they share through this photography contest. Photos and winner’s names will be posted on the KIB website, Facebook and featured in the KIB Newsletter.
