Give Us Your Best Shot!
The Heart of the Valley Photo Contest Resumes


Go ahead, give us your best shot! Heck, give us a few. We can take it.
         That’s because the photos you submit to the monthly Heart of the Valley Photo Contest inspire us and help make a difference.
          Sure, the photos your share with us of this winter’s snowpocalypse or your dogs walking across the Bow Bridge or grandkids playing ball or wildlife in your backyard will win you the admiration of your friends and neighbors as well as some cool prizes. But your pictures will also be used to help make a positive impact for the Wood River Valley!
          They will motivate locals to make the most out of life in this magical place. They will encourage people to visit, to appreciate and to spend money in our tourist-driven economy. They will be used to help save and restore our wild places and open spaces.
          That’s why the two longtime local non-profits, The Chamber and the Wood River Land Trust, are excited to bring back the popular Heart of the Valley Photo Contest.  It is a way to highlight the talent of our community and to honor this blessed place we call home.
          Each month the contest will have a different theme and sponsor.
It is also open to anyone and covers just about any subject. It doesn’t
matter if you’re 7-years old or 77, if you’ve lived here for decades or are just visiting, if you like to take pictures of people and pets or businesses, landscapes or your lunch. We are happy to see them all.
          And you never know what will happen with that picture you send in. It may win you a prize or be highlighted on Facebook or in the glossy pages of our award-winning annual Discover the Wood River Valley Guide, or it might simply make someone’s day.
         We are just happy to share your passions and photos of the Wood River Valley and thank you for helping. So go ahead and give us your best shot!
