Visiting Santa Fe

2014 December, 2014 Holiday Farolito Contest

December 5, 2014 - TOURISM Santa Fe announces the 2014 Farolito Design Contest open to all current and new followers on the @cityofsantafe Instagram social media platform from December 5th to midnight Christmas Day, December 25th.

Contestants who make and photograph their own creative farolito can post the image on Instagram using the city holiday hashtag #SantaFeJoy, the city’s ongoing #howtosantafe hashtag, and the contest hashtag #Farolito. They also need to “tag” the TOURISM Santa Fe handle “@cityofsantafe” in their post and they’ll automatically be entered to win prize packages from a variety of local hotels, restaurants, and cultural attractions.

The entries will be judged on three qualities: Creative Design, Holiday Spirit, and Image Composition. Volunteer judges are Rod Lambert – Manager, TOURISM Santa Fe Community Art Gallery, Enrique Limón – Arts & Culture Editor, Santa Fe Reporter, and B.Y. Cooper – Associate Publisher, Bella Media. Anyone else can be a judge too—a People’s Choice Prize will go to the post that receives the most overall engagement of likes, comments, and reposts.
Winners will be announced on TOURISM Santa Fe social media channels Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook on December 30, on the contest web page, and all entries will be “pinned” on the TOURISM Santa Fe Pinterest page.
