#NEIpride Photo Contest Call for Entries
Millennials invited to show regional pride on Instagram

FORT WAYNE, Ind. -  The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership, through its Millennial 2020 initiative, and Wunderkammer Company are teaming up to create an Instagram photo contest. Millennials (roughly ages 17-29) are invited to submit photos on Instagram that include a location, person, or activity in Northeast Indiana that makes the contestant proud to call Northeast Indiana their home.

Contestants enter photos by posting from their Instagram account and using the hashtag #NEIpride in the caption as well as the hashtag of the name of their county. (Participants must reside in the 10 county region of Northeast Indiana to be eligible to win: Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wabash, Wells and Whitley counties.)

Photos are eligible for prizes including gas cards, gift cards to regional restaurants, concert tickets, and a regional experience gift basket. The first 100 photos submitted will be displayed in Granite Ridge Builders homes around the region.

Entries can be submitted April 17 - April 26 and judging will take place April 27 - May 12. In addition to the panel of judges choosing winners, the photo with the most "likes" on Instagram will win the Peoples Choice Award.

For a complete list of guidelines and more information about the contest, visit www.Millennial2020.com. Sponsorships are also available; see website for details.
