CMA Fest Holds Photo Contest

Past attendees of the CMA Music Festival will be able to submit their event photographs online as
part of a contest for the 40th anniversary of the festival. Photos can be submitted online in order to create an on-going photo archive that is to document the fan/artist connection, which is the heart and soul of the festivities. 
Photos that are submitted will be considered for use on the CMA website, publications, displays, exhibits and much more for the 2011 CMA Music Festival, which will be in Downtown Nashville June 9-12. Six of the submitted photos will be used as the artwork on the official event tickets. The contest is running through March 7.
"Everyone that has attended CMA Music Festival in the past has taken hundreds of photos that captured their experience," said Steve Moore, CMA Chief Executive Officer. "An event ticket containing one of these photos is a great way to celebrate our 40th anniversary while also providing a permanent souvenir to every ticketholder.”
Prizes will be given to the fans submitting photos, including a commemorative framed 40th anniversary CMA Music Festival plaque, merchandise prize packs and much more. The Grand Prize winner will receive two Gold Circle four-day tickets to the 2012 CMA Music Festival.
"It would be amazing if each photo chosen to be on the event ticket showcased a different aspect of the Festival at a different point in its history," said Wendy Pearl, CMA Vice President of Corporate Communications and Executive Editor of CMA Close Up. "We are hoping this new Festival photo archive will be as complete as possible, showcasing the entire breadth of the event from 1972 onward, so that we can fully document this amazing and iconic event for all to see. CMA appreciates the fans and past attendees searching through their scrapbooks for photos to submit."
