Why are we holding a photo contest?

The Bridal Fair is looking for a new photo to promote their show. The photo will be used on all of our marketing and promotional materials to help promote the Kamloops Bridal Fair.

With so many talented photographers in Kamloops and surrounding areas, we thought it would be great to have you submit your favourite wedding photo that can help us promote our Bridal Show.

What do you get in return for the use of your photo?

Your company will be recognized on all of the print material that uses the photograph, giving you a whole lot of free marketing.

In 2018 we had over 400 brides attend the Bridal Fair, all of whom received our Bridal program, which would have your photo on the cover.

Plus we papered Kamloops with all of our posters, and gave most of our exhibitors flyers to hand out to people at their shops. Again your photo would be on all of these. Convinced yet?
