ABRAM-VILLAGE – July 2, 2020 – A new « selfie » photo contest, designed to encourage visits to nine PEI member sites of the national Cultural, Heritage and Tourism Corridor, is offering a $200 « Corridor cash » prize. The amount must be spent before the end of August, of course at any of these attractions.
Ricky Hitchcock, who is responsible for the PEI section of the Corridor with RDÉE Prince Edward Island, explains that all people have to do is take a selfie photo with a cellphone, during the month of July, in front of one of the following sites:
• The Bottle Houses in Cape Egmont;
• The Lobster Shack à Gilles à Alva in Mont-Carmel;
• The Acadian Museum of PEI in Miscouche;
• Chez Yvette Bed & Breakfast in Urbainville;
• Island Artisan Cheesehouse in Mont-Carmel;
• The Acadian Musical Village in Abram-Village;
• The Farmers’ Bank of Rustico and the Doucet House in Rustico;
• Roma at Three Rivers National Historic Site in Brudenell;
• Mill River Resort Experience in Woodstock.
All one has to do is send a photo, along with one’s name, region and email address, to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight July 31. Each person can only submit one photo per site; this means a maximum of nine photos can be submitted. The person submitting the photo must mandatorily be in the picture.
A random draw will then be held from among the names of those who’ve submitted photos. The winner will receive 10 “Corridor cash” coupons, each worth $20, to be spent as desired at the nine participating attractions.
By entering the contest, people authorize RDÉE Prince Edward Island to use their photos for promotional purposes for the contest, either on its website, in its social media or in the media, without compensation.
« The objective of this contest is obviously to help Islanders and Atlantic Canadians discover these nine wonderful Acadian, francophone or bilingual places, attractions or experiences and to support tourism operators who are feeling the effects of the pandemic, » said Ricky Hitchcock. « We also want to see your beautiful smiles and your best selfies.”
CUTLINE: Ricky Hitchcock, who is responsible for the Island section of the National Cultural Heritage and Tourism Corridor, officially launches a selfie photo contest to promote nine of the Corridor’s member attractions. He can be seen at The Bottle Houses.
