Instead of paying the going rate for a cover photo for its Visitor Guide or commissioning a photographer (like the “pros” do), The Union is offering this:
“Visitor’s Guide Photo Contest
Calling all photographers, both amateur and professional.
What is your favorite place in Nevada County? Submit a photo that shows off the unique beauty of this special place, and it might just be chosen as the cover of the 2016-2017 official Nevada County Visitor’s Guide. Runners up will be featured in a photo gallery, and might be highlighted in the publication as well!
The winner will receive a $50 Ben Franklin Gift Card, photo credit in the Visitor’s Guide, and bragging rights!”
