Tourist in your Own Hometown
ABOUT THE CONTEST:
It’s time to ‘Live it up like a tourist’ in your own hometown! In celebration of National Tourism month, Visit Mason City encourages you to get out and explore Mason City just like thousands of visitors do each year. Our Bucket List Photo Challenge will help get you started. See how many attractions you can visit, places you can eat, sites you can see, and events and things you can do!
HOW IT WORKS:
Participating is easy! Pick up a bucket list checklist from Visit Mason City and see how many items you can check off your list between May 5-May 25. To earn entries into our prize drawing, post your bucket list photos with the hashtag #MasonCityIAMoments and tag Visit Mason City on Instagram (@VisitMasonCityIowa) or Facebook (@MasonCityIowa). Each photo/bucket list item posted & tagged, including the hashtag, will earn one entry – an individual may earn up to 18 entries for a completed bucket list.
*Please make sure your post settings are set to public, not private. If your settings are set to private we may not see your post, and thus your photo won’t be entered into the contest. Questions regarding contest entries and if your photo was received and entered, please email Tessa at firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh, and one last thing – don’t forget to get creative with your photos! The more creative, the better! BIG prizes awarded accordingly! For complete contest rules – Contest Rules
