NewBedfordGuide.com hosted photo contests in April and May. April’s results can be seen here and May’s can be seen here. We are once again offering our Facebook cover photo to one photographer this month through a free contest. Our Facebook cover photo is valuable real estate for any photographer because the New Bedford Guide facebook page reaches over 20,000 people in New Bedford, or over 77,000 people in Massachusetts and Rhode Island each week. All photographers will get to promote their work to the masses with one photographer gaining additional exposure by being awarded our Facebook cover for a full month. The winning photo will have the photographers name and optional contact information watermarked on it. We will also choose winner for our Fairhaven Guide and Dartmouth Guide Facebook Pages.
- Join our Facebook Page and the Southcoast, MA Photographers Facebook group to make sure you get updates.
- All photos will get uploaded to this Facebook album. The photos with the top 20 likes will be used to pull the final winner from. You can can vote/like one, some or all of the photos.
