Postcard Photo Contest

Submissions due April 30th
Open to the public

We’re looking for the perfect picture for a new postcard and need your help! Send us your pictures from your visits, and be entered to win a grand prize of an annual membership.

This contest is open to the public. You may only submit up to three (3) photos, so select your best. All submissions must be received by April 30th. The winner will be announced via social media on Opening Day, May 13th.

Types of Photos

We are looking specifically for photos of the interior of the Lucknow Museum, such as pictures of the rondels, views through the windows or artistic interior shots; special architectural features of the interior or exterior of our buildings; fall foliage images highlighting the autumn leaves from our estate; and views of the lakes and mountains with signifying features of our estate.

This photo contest is to help us generate a postcard to be sold in our Gift Shop – photos should be submitted without needing alterations. Postcards are 4″x6″ so photos should be close to that size and/or scale. Horizontal and vertical images will be accepted.

How to Submit Your Photos

Submit your photos by posting to our Facebook page or via Twitter. Be sure to include somewhere in the post that it is an entry for our “Postcard Photo Contest.” Sorry – we will not be using Instagram as a submission platform for this contest, but you are welcome to share any of your pictures and tag us! Photos may also be emailed to info@castleintheclouds.org.

All submissions must be received by 11:59pm on Sunday April 30th. Be sure to include the photographer’s first and last name so a photo credit can be included if we use your photos.

A Castle in the Clouds representative may contact you via social media to email us with more information. This does not necessarily mean that your photo was selected as the winning photo. The winner(s) will be contacted via social media and/or email with verification that his/her photo was selected as a winner. We will publicly announce the winner and his/her photo on opening day, Saturday May 13th.
