A trip for two to Reykjavik, Iceland is the grand prize of this photo contest, which is also everyoneâ€™s chance to show off his hometown and what makes it tick. Submit a photo of what you love about your hometown and thatâ€™s it; no need to buy anything for you to join. This is sponsored by staples.com.
The contest, dubbed â€œHometown Views,â€ is open to U.S. citizens 18 years or older. To be eligible you must be an amateur photographer, meaning you have not received any compensation for any photographs you have taken in the past five years.
Staples and the Professional Photographers of America will select 40 finalists who will receive gift cards worth $100 at Staples. The grand prize winner will win the Ultimate Photo Vacation to Iceland, a 5-day, 4-night stay with accommodations. All entrants will receive a Staples coupon for a free 12 x 18-inch color poster.
