As part of Venture Portland’s year-long 30th birthday celebration, we are hosting a contest to promote neighborhood businesses called the ‘Click. Tag. Win. Selfie Challenge.’ It’s simple. Participants will take a picture of themselves (selfie) at their favorite neighborhood businesses and then upload the photo to their personal Facebook, Twitter or Instagram social media accounts with #pdxLOVESsmallbiz, @VenturePortland or they can email their photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Venture Portland staff will collect all the photos and present them to the Venture Portland Board who will vote for their favorites. The winners will receive a gift certificate from the business featured in the photo (Venture Portland will purchase the gift certificate; businesses DO NOT have to donate them).
The contest will follow this schedule:
- 2/1 – Launch
- 2/1 – 2/14 – Small Business Big Hearts (Valentine’s day tie-in, plus first challenge)
- 2/15 – First prize awarded for Valentine’s day tie-in challenge
- 2/15 – 4/24 – Contest continues; ’10 weeks, 10 challenges, 10 winners’
- 4/25 – Venture Portland Annual Meeting; attendees vote for their favorite photos
- 4/26 – Final prizes awarded
