Capture Charlottesville and Albemarle Photo Contest

The Charlottesville Albemarle Convention & Visitors Bureau (CACVB) invites you to show the world Charlottesville and Albemarle through your own photos!

Capture Charlottesville is a special photo contest that provides an opportunity for the casual and serious photographer alike to capture the natural beauty, unique character, unparalleled history, vibrant culture and remarkable people that combine to make the Charlottesville/Albemarle area one of America's true treasures. This year we are particularly interested in winter and spring photos.

The CACVB is looking to select 1 winning photograph and 5 runner-up photographs.  The winning photograph will be awarded $1,000 and each runner-up photograph will be awarded $100! Photos are to be used in CACVB world-wide marketing collateral, websites, advertising, media-kits, posters, tradeshows, and for any CACVB promotion. Both amateur and professional photographers are welcome to participate.

We will unveil our winning photographs during Tourism Week in May.  

Photos can be submitted three ways:

1) digitally to capturecville@gmail.com
2) on a data cd mailed to the CACVB (P.O. Box 178, Charlottesville, VA 22902)
3) dropped off at the CACVB offices at 610 East Main Street Charlottesville, VA 22902
