We Are Changing It Up!

Beginning this week, our “Selfie” Contest is now a “PHOTO” contest. You are still welcome to take and submit Selfies using each week’s theme, but now, you may also take and submit any photo that includes someone, somewhere in Hallowell, engaged in that week’s “Discover Hallowell” theme.

Discover Hallowell Photo Contest Rules

Have fun, get creative as you explore all that downtown Hallowell has to offer. And while you’re exploring, be sure to snap a Selfie to enter in our weekly random drawing for images uploaded to Instagram or Facebook that represent our weekly theme. Here are a few simple rules for the contest:

April 5 – July 13 | A $25 Prize Every Week!

Every week there will be a different theme to feature in your selfie. Look for weekly themes to be posted on Fridays at Facebook.com/HallowellArts/ or Instagram @Hallowellarts or at Hallowell.org.

Guidelines for submissions:

  • Tag your photos with #DiscoverHallowell AND #HallowellSelfieContest.
  • Tag our page @HallowellArts (Instagram) or “Hallowell Music & Arts” (Facebook).
  • Tell us where the photo was taken downtown.
  • If your Facebook account is “private” edit this post to “public”; for Instagram set your profile to “public” for the week or we won’t see your submission.
  • Photos must fit with the weekly theme.
  • If your account is “Private”, make this one post “Public” or we won’t see your submission

Every following Thursday, a photo will be chosen at random and the winner will receive a $25 gift certificate from a Hallowell merchant. All weekly winners will compete to win a grand prize at Old Hallowell Day on July 21. A signed release form is required to qualify for the grand prize. (Participants may only win one weekly prize.)
