Vote for a top photo

The top photos of a photo contest have been selected, and now the public is being invited to help select a grand prize winner. The photo contest will end Aug. 31, so time is of essence.

Earlier this year, Advance Thief River Falls, and Thief River Falls Making It Home Social Media Taskforce invited photographers to submit photos in six categories: business and industry, city views, family life, nature, pets and animals and Prowler Pride.

“We were overwhelmed by the number of high quality submissions, and are thankful to all who entered the contest,” said Michelle Landsverk, Advance Thief River Falls director.

Winners in each category have been selected and are: Britney Schwab in the business and industry category; Beth Iliff in the city views category; Katie Stavos in the family life category; Katie Savos in the nature category; Khristina West in the pets and animals category; and Jim Hustad in the Prowler Pride category.

Each category winner receives $50 in Chamber Bucks. Category winners are now competing for the grand prize award of $250 in Chamber Bucks. Advance Thief River is asking the public to help them pick a grand prize-winning photo from among the six category winners. The category winner that receives the most public votes will be declared the grand prize winner and will receive $250 in Chamber Bucks.

To vote, go to the Advance Thief River website: Simply click on the star of the photo you wish to vote for. You may vote once per day through Aug. 31.

Photos that were submitted through the contest will be used to promote the area, supporting the work and objectives of Advance Thief River. The contest and prizes have been sponsored by Sanford Health Thief River Falls.
