Staples Copy & Print Centers has launched its first nationwide “Hometown Views” Photo Contest. The grand prize winner will be selected by Staples with the assistance of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). Staples is offering amateur photographers a chance to have their photos viewed and sold to countless customers in Staples stores throughout the country.
Professional photographers are prohibited from entering, but you can encourage friends, relatives and clients who are photography enthusiasts to enter. Each contest entrant will receive a coupon for one free big color poster redeemable at any Staples Copy & Print Center inside every Staples store. Approximately 40 regional finalists will be selected and will receive prizes, which may include Staples gift cards and royalties of up to $5,000 from photos sold in over 1,300 Staples stores. One grand prize winner will receive an “Ultimate Photo Vacation to Iceland.”
