The Alabama Big 10 Mayors on Wednesday announced a statewide photo competition that will allow Alabamians living in and around Alabama’s 10 biggest cities to submit photos of their respective cities with a chance to be recognized as the winner and receive an award.

This photo competition will launch on Wednesday, July 5th and will conclude Tuesday, September 4th following Labor Day weekend.

Alabamians wishing to participate in this photo competition will be asked to submit photos of their cities via direct message to the Alabama Big 10 Mayors’ Facebook page. The Alabama Big 10 Mayors will then share these posts through social media, and the photo that receives the most likes will be declared the winner. The winner will receive a $500 Visa gift card and recognition as competition winner from the Alabama Big 10 Mayors’ platform.

Cities included in the Alabama Big 10 Mayors organization are Auburn, Birmingham, Decatur, Dothan, Hoover, Huntsville, Madison, Mobile, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa.

The Alabama Big Ten Mayors released the following statement on this photo competition:

“From the mountains of the Tennessee Valley to the Alabama Gulf Coast and everything in between, our state – and our state’s cities – are some of the most individually unique as any in the country,” said the Alabama Big 10 Mayors. “Whether it’s history, culture, architecture, entertainment, or natural beauty, Alabama’s ten biggest cities have something to offer for everyone.” 

“The unique character of each of Alabama’s largest cities is important and worth showcasing. We want to give each of these cities’ residents the opportunity to show their city pride and share their city’s beauty through the lens of a camera. We urge all Big 10 residents with an artistic eye for the camera to snap some photos of their city and submit it for this competition and give your city a chance to win this contest.”
