How to Vote

As we have done in previous years, the voting will be done on our Facebook page. 

  • On September 6th, we will narrow down all the photo submissions to our hand-picked semi-finalists. Photos will be judged on creativity, photo quality and overall wow-factor.
  • All semi-finalist photos will be uploaded to a photo album on our Heartland Bank Facebook page for the public to vote.
  • From September 6th through September 27th, to place your vote, simply "Like" the photo. Each like counts as one vote. Tip: Winners are chosen by popular vote. Encourage your friends and family to share your entry and vote for it and think of other ways you can get your photo out there. Get creative!
  • Voting ends on September 27th. We will contact and announce the winners the following week.

Our Facebook Page


Now for the good stuff. Where there's a contest, there are prizes. Our top three contest winners will be determined by the total number of Facebook "Likes" on each photo.

  • Grand Prize: The lucky first place photographer will receive $300 of cold, hard cash.
  • 2nd & 3rd Place: Being a runner-up isn't so bad when the second and third place finishers will receive $100 each.
  • Calendar Photos: All semi-finalists whose photos are used for as the main image for a month will each receive $25.

Must be 18 years or older to enter contest. No purchase required. Employees, Board of Directors and vendors of the Bank are not eligible to win.
