Henderson Adds Instagram to Fifth Annual “What Makes Henderson Great!” Photo Contest

October 22, 2013



Henderson, Nev. – The city of Henderson is seeking the public’s pictorial point of view about what makes Henderson a great place to live, learn, work and play in the fifth annual “What Makes Henderson Great!” photo contest. There is no cost to enter and photographers may enter up to five images. The deadline to submit entries is December 21, 2013.

There are no restrictions for submissions or themes. Examples of subjects may include but are not limited to landscapes, landmarks, friends, animals, abstract, sports and portraits. The only requirement is that images must be taken within the city of Henderson limits.

“This year we’re making it easier for participants to enter the contest by introducing Instagram entries,” said Bud Cranor, Communications Director. “Participants just have to tag their images with the #WMHG13 hash tag to enter.”

"This competition gives citizens the opportunity to capture the beauty of Henderson and demonstrate how our city looks to them. I encourage photographers of all ages to participate,” said Henderson Mayor Andy Hafen. “I’m really looking forward to seeing things that residents find important and impactful to their lives.”

Winners will have their image(s) displayed at City Hall, on the official website and Facebook page, and may be shown at the Mayor’s 2014 State of the City address. In addition, winners may also receive recognition by the Henderson City Council.

“The contest is open to everyone,” said Henderson City Manager Jacob Snow. “We have a wonderful city and want to give people the chance to show us, through their eyes, what has made Henderson such an attractive place for them.”

Contest rules and entry forms may be found at and must be submitted with each entry.

Images may be submitted electronically by email to or by mail to:
