Photo Contest

Downtown Wagoner Corporation, Visit Wagoner, the Wagoner Area Chamber of Commerce and Fort Gibson Lake Association are teaming up to host a “Visit Wagoner Photo Contest” and all area residents are invited to participate.

The organizations want to showcase the community through full color images that showcase the uniqueness, character and all the fun of Wagoner.

Downtown Wagoner Corporation Director Samantha Call said submitted photos will be used to promote the area as a travel destination through organization websites, social media, printed material and more.

“We invite you to capture your favorite moments from life in Wagoner,” Call said. “Photos may be from festivals, outdoor events, sports, Fort Gibson Lake, city parks, bike trails or anywhere you can have fun in the area.”

For the spring/summer season, photos must be taken anytime from May 13 through July 10.

“We will publish submitted photos via our websites and social media and announce the top three fan favorite candidates from June 15 and July 15. The top three from each date will compete for the overall grand prize of $500, and the winner will be announced on August 1.”
