Tourism Penticton is in the market for some alluring photographs of the Okanagan, and they’re looking to outsource.

The Escapes and Landscapes Photography Contest launched on Sept. 21 and runs until Oct. 11, calling on amateur and professional photographers to submit their most captivating shots of Penticton.

The top three submissions will be featured and credited on the Tourism Penticton website, and the top entry will win a gift pack worth $500, as well as enlarged, framed print of their submission, and a special mention in the 2016 Tourism Penticton Experience Guide.

“Whether you’re a professional or a budding amateur this is a great opportunity to get some well-earned exposure for your artistic talent,” said Kelly Hopkins, executive director at Tourism Penticton.

“Grab your camera, find your favourite Penticton and Wine Country escape and get snapping!”

Entry forms can be found on line at visitpenticton.com/contests-promotions, or in person at the Penticton and Wine Country Visitors Centre.
