Scenes of the Region Photo Contest

Get connected to the region and show your love for beautiful Central New York with WCNY’s Scenes of the Region photo contest in the Summer Edition beginning on June 21.

This quarterly campaign will spotlight the picturesque vineyards, lakes, waterfalls, farms, mountains, and overall stunning landscapes of the WCNY region.

Snap a photo, then upload it below. WCNY’s professional media team will select the top 20 photographed Scenes of the Region for each season of the year (summer, autumn, winter, spring). Then, YOU get to vote for the winning photos!

The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will receive an Amazon gift card, as well as a feature on WCNY’s social media and website. In addition, the 1st place winner will be featured on WCNY-TV.
