Initially we challenged amateur and professional photographers alike to shoot five different photos from the same location over a 10 day period.

But after seeing all the great fall shots out there, we changed our minds!! We know you’re busy, so to make life simple, we want to see any and all fall photos!

The winning photos will be @CarsonValleyNevada Facebook cover photos.

The #WhyCV photography contest begins Oct. 1 and has been extended to Oct. 23.

  • Entrants are asked to submit your fall images, from around the Carson Valley area (Genoa, Minden, Gardnerville, Topaz Lake) to [email protected]
  • Include your name, and the location of the photo.
  • Winners will be notified by October 26.
  • Selected photos will appear on the Visit Carson Valley blog and shared on social media.

The Fine Print

By posting or emailing your photo to us, you are submitting your formal entry for the #WhyCV contest as well as giving Visit Carson Valley permission to use the photo on social media and in print. We will post and tag your social media accounts when possible, but will always credit your work. Please include your social media user names when emailing, private messaging or posting. 

Please make sure you have the express permission from any people in the photo to be publicly displayed.

Timing of the Facebook cover photo will be at the discretion of Visit Carson Valley.

Good luck and let’s see your creative juices flow!
