Centralia Balloon Fest Photo Contest Announced

August 13, 2014

The Greater Centralia Chamber of Commerce announces it will sponsor a “Balloon Fest Photo Contest” following this year’s 25th Annual event. The Chamber holds a contest every few years in hopes of gathering some fantastic photos that could be used for future display in its annual Balloon Fest brochure and tabloid program. Over the years, we have been blessed with some wonderful photos that visitors have shared with us. As the old saying goes, we can’t be everywhere at once, so we are hoping to see different views of the event by way of these photos. There are some great amateur photographers out there, and we hope they will share their talents with us.

The first place winner will receive $75.00 cash plus a framed print of their winning photo. Second place winner will receive $50.00 cash and third place will receive 4 complimentary 3-Day passes to Balloon Fest 2015.  Photographs must be submitted to the Chamber of Commerce office, 130 S. Locust Street, Centralia, IL 62801 by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 5th and must include name, address and telephone number on the back of each photo. Electronic entries are not allowed. All entries submitted will become the sole possession of the Chamber and can be used in future promotions for Balloon Fest.
