Salt lake exposed photo contest - cover 1

Do you know an enchanted corner of Salt Lake City? An uncaptured angle? A local dish, scene, or work of art prime for its pixel-y debut? Well, now's your chance to represent.

Salt Lake Exposed is a photo competition for photographers of all levels. It doesn't matter if you snap quickies with your phone or painstakingly compose long exposures; we want to see the city through your eyes. Here's how to enter and win...

Contest Details

Enter the contest on the Visit Salt Lake Facebook page between June 19th and July 6th. You can submit as many photos as you like, in the following five categories:

All approved submissions will be viewable in a gallery on Facebook.

There will be seven winners in total: one overall grand-prize winner, five first-place winners (one per category), and one "fan favorite" winner.


The panel of judges will select the grand-prize winner, the five first-place winners, and the 15 "fan favorite" contenders (three from each category). Visit Salt Lake's Facebook fans will then vote on these contenders.
