It’s your chance to show off those pictures you have taken of and around Ponca City. Noel Black, Chamber of Commerce Tourism Director said the tourism department is holding a photo contest to add more pictures to its collection.

"What we’re doing is we created this photo contest to broaden our photos that we have of Ponca City," Black said. "We have pictures that we’ve taken in our office, but a lot of times people have their views of the city of what they see, so we’ve created this contest to broaden our images of Ponca City in hopes to use them for ads or any type of media, on our news blast and Facebook and such."

There are eight categories to enter photos. Those categories are recreation, places/attractions, nature, events, kids/families, play/hobbies, architecture and agriculture.

All you have to do to enter the photo contest is go to Ponca City Tourism’s Facebook and click the link which your photo fits in. Black said you also have to like the Facebook page before entering.

" It is a contest, the contest is running Aug.1 of this year to Feb.1 of 2015, so we’re doing six months," Black said. "Each month we will have a winner and they will receive $25 in Chamber Bucks, and then the Grand Prize Winner will receive $250 in Chamber Bucks. Then after all this is done we will select some of the top photos and they will be portrayed at the Ponca City Art Center in an exhibit."

Once the photos are entered they are the property of Ponca City Tourism and they may do as they like with them. The contest is already posted on the Tourism Facebook page and will soon be posted on PoncaCityChamber.com and PoncaCityTourism.com.
