Fall is a great time to shoot a photo of your favorite place in Iowa and enter Keep Iowa Beautiful’s eighth Photography Contest, aimed at raising awareness of Iowa’s rural and urban beauty. This photo contest offers both amateur and experienced photographers an opportunity to tell Iowa’s story in a fun, engaging way during your favorite season.


“This is a great way for Iowans to share what they like about Iowa,” said Gerry Schnepf, KIB executive director. “First place will receive $50, second place $25. Both will receive a one-year subscription to Pioneer Publishing’s The Iowan magazine.”


The deadline is Dec. 15 and entries must be submitted as high resolution JPEG electronically to bjackson@keepiowabeautiful.com. There is a $5 entry fee; contest rules and payment can be made at https://www.keepiowabeautiful.com/photography-contest-entry/.


Keep Iowa Beautiful empowers Iowans to bring cultural and economic vitality into communities through improvement and enhancement programs. By working directly with Iowa communities, corporations and private citizens, KIB is building new citizen pride in caring for Iowa. KIB wants to learn what resonates with Iowans based on the photographs they share through this photography contest. Photos and winner’s names will be posted on the KIB website, Facebook and featured in the KIB newsletter.
