From friendly faces to breathtaking landscapes, neighbors are invited to share the unique beauty of their neighborhood in one-of-kind photography contest
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Nov. 9, 2022 — Today, Nextdoor (NYSE: KIND), the neighborhood network, launched the #LoveYourNeighborhood photography contest, a special initiative inviting everyday Americans to share the local flavor, faces and beauty of their neighborhoods. Starting today through November 20th, neighbors can enter by simply posting an image to Nextdoor with the hashtag #LoveYourNeighborhoodContest.
“The most moving, heartful and impactful images come from photographers who truly connect with their subject,” said Sarah Friar, CEO of Nextdoor. “With #LoveYourNeighborhood, we’re inviting neighbors to tell the stories of their neighborhoods through their own unique, personal lens. We’re excited to see the many ways beauty and belonging unfolds across the neighborhoods we call home.”
To honor the many forms of ‘local flavor’, photos will be evaluated based on five different categories:
- #FacesOfTheNeighborhood: Taking a close-up of the character of the neighborhood, photos that feature at least one person
- #NaturalWonders: A close up of a flower, a quiet moment at the lake – photos that feature flora, fauna, or a local body of water
- #SunriseSunset: From the first flicker of sunrise to the glow of ‘golden hour’, images that capture these two special times of day in a neighborhood
- #Cityscape: A covered bridge, a towering skyscraper, a well-loved treehouse – any image that features a man-made structure
- #LocalFave: Celebrating the one-of-kind features of a neighborhood – from murals, a local shop or business, a festival or parade
Neighbors can enter as many times as they like using the hashtag #LoveYourNeighborhoodContest and including one of the above category hashtags that best describes their entry. The overall grand prize winning photo will be featured in a four week campaign on Nextdoor within their city, and receive a prize package including a new Nikon digital camera, MasterClass subscription, a commemorative coffee table book featuring a selection of entries from the competition and $500 in gift vouchers. Four finalists will also receive a prize package.
The #LoveYourNeighborhood contest kicks off today, with entries accepted until November 20th. A panel of judges from the Nextdoor community, including CEO Sarah Friar will select the finalists from the pool of entries. Finalists will be revealed on the platform on November 23rd, inviting neighbors to cast a vote for their favorite. The results, winners, and images will be revealed on November 29th, 2022.
