November 11-27, 2016
@ Santa Fe, New Mexico

@SimplySantaFeNM is thrilled to announce (again!) we have teamed up with yellCast connection engine to host the #yellCast Local Passion Photo Contest!

You know how when something on your computer isn’t working you reboot the system and suddenly everything works again? Well. that’s what we have done with the yellCast photo contest! The first go around was a little confusing so we’ve revamped our concept to ask you to “Show us your Local Passion” – i.e. your favorite local businesses, products, services, merchandise, people and places. If you need inspiration, just look at the @SimplySantaFeNM feed, it’s filled with images of local love.

yellCast is a new tool for searching the internet and connecting with the local economy. The benefits for local businesses and consumers are powerful. We LOVE this concept and as very vocal (and visual!) proponents of living local, we are absolutely 100% behind their mission. during the exclusive pilot in Santa Fe we ask you to join in our contest for a chance to win local prizes and make local connections! Try it today by searching yellCast to help find your local passions!

🏆 GRAND PRIZES: Cash prizes for top vote-getters on yellCast Facebook page.
🎗 HONORABLE MENTIONS: yellCast t-shirts and tote bags, winners to be chosen at random from all entries.
Photo contest entries must be posted to Instagram using the hashtag #yellCast between the dates of November 11-27. Participants must have a PUBLIC Instagram account to be eligible (otherwise they are not viewable) and follow @SimplySantaFeNM. Instagrammers have full creative license over subject material as long as it speaks to the theme of showing us your local passion. All the images submitted on the hashtag will be added to a photo album on the yellCast Facebook Page where community members will vote from November 28-December 4 for their favorite images by liking the photos. Images with the most likes will be awarded the cash prizes (a minimum five participants).
