The 2014 Snap and Win Photo Contest

November 6, 2014

At the beginning of the month the Long Island Convention and Visitors Bureau & Sports Commission’s (LICVB&SC) wrapped up its annual Snap and Win photo contest.  This is the Bureau’s second year holding the contest.  Throughout September photographers were given an opportunity to submit their favorite works portraying the things they love about Long Island, resulting in over a thousand submissions.  Among the contenders were beautiful shots of Long Island’s beaches, parks, historic structures, local events and more, but in the end only a handful of these works of art would be declared winners.

However, it isn’t so that the rest of these submissions will go unseen.  The Convention and Visitors Bureau truly values each and every photograph they receive during this time of year, and apply them in several rings. The LICVB&SC uses these pictures throughout the year in social media, in publications and other collateral materials.  Can you guess where many of the backgrounds and spreads came from when LICVB&SC produced the 2014 Travel Guide?  Each artist is credited fully so if you are a prize winning professional, or just a casual photographer that submitted his/her shot on a whim, people will know who to thank.
