Fall Snapshot Contest starts today

Local Snapshots Category Logo 2016It’s the first day of fall, mamas! We LOVE fall in Northwest Arkansas — the leaves, the cooler temps, the Razorback football. What’s not to love?

So today we’re kicking off the Fall Snapshot Contest, and we’re really looking forward to seeing you and your kids enjoying this season. Whether it’s an outdoor shot, a pic at the pumpkin patch, trick-or-treating, playing sports, or just hanging out at home having fun, we want to see the snapshots that make you happy every time you scroll through them on your phone.

pixabay-mom2Remember that we’d love to see kids (and moms) of all ages in the contest. (That includes you, grandparents!) Whether you’ve got babies or teenagers, send us your favorite shots.

HOW TO ENTER: Send up to 5 photos per month to gwen@nwaMotherlode.com. Our judges will select a winner at the end of November. The mom who submits the winning snapshot will win a 16×20 gallery-wrapped canvas prepared by our friends at Scott Frame & Art. It will be ready to hang on the wall, just in time for the holidays!

Good luck in the contest. Looking forward to seeing your pictures!
