Fall is a great time to shoot a photo of your favorite place in Iowa and enter Keep Iowa Beautiful’s 8th Annual 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 Iowans to share what they like about Iowa,” said Gerry Schnepf, Keep Iowa Beautiful 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 via the Keep Iowa Beautiful online entry form. Photos must be uploaded as high resolution JPEG. Entry form, photo uploads and the $5 entry fee, contest rules and payment can all be made and found at https://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, Keep Iowa Beautiful is building new citizen pride in caring for Iowa. Keep Iowa Beautiful 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 Keep Iowa Beautiful website, Facebook and featured in the Keep Iowa Beautiful Newsletter.
