Contest Eligibility

The Chamber Photo Contest aims to highlight the unique charm and beauty of the Nicola Valley and the city of Merritt, so we request all entries feature the Nicola Valley region. If your photo submission is clearly representing a different region or community, it may be disqualified for prizes. The Chamber does welcome entries from participants outside of the Merritt area, so if you're a traveler or frequent our community from outside, we'd love to see your photo souvenirs!

By entering the Chamber Photo Contest, you provide permission for the Merritt & District Chamber of Commerce to use your entry photos for promotional purposes. The winning entries will be featured and promoted by the Chamber but all entries may be used for future promotions.
