Public Voting Begins for Long Realty’s “Why I Love Arizona” Photo Contest

(Tucson, AZ, Mar 11, 2013) Long Realty’s second annual “Why I Love Arizona” photo contest is underway and only weeks away from announcing a winner. The “Why I Love Arizona” web site received over 850 submissions and now we need your help to vote for the best photos. This final stage of the photo contest is online, and public voting runs from March 11 through 5pm March 29.

“We have had another great showing in this year’s contest with over 850 fabulous photo submissions that can be viewed in the online galleries.” says Kevin Kaplan, Long Realty Vice President of Marketing & Technology. “So many Arizonans contributed their art to this contest to show us why they love Arizona.”

The first phase of the photo contest, from February 4 through February 22, gave people the opportunity to submit a photo to 1 of 10 categories expressing why they love Arizona. Long Realty’s internal judges then narrowed the 850 submissions down to the top 10 in each category. 

Long Realty now asks that the public help decide which photo wins the top prize in each category and the overall grand prize of $1,962. One vote is allowed per person per day per category during the online voting period. Whichever photo receives the most online votes in each category will win the prize for that category and the photo that receives the most overall votes will receive the grand prize.

Long Realty has always been devoted to giving back to the community and is donating $1 to the Long Realty Cares Foundation for every photo that was submitted to the contest. The Long Realty Cares Foundation, created in 2002, has raised more than 2 million dollars for over 170 Arizona charities.
