MINT HILL, NC – The Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce is now accepting entries for the annual “Best of Mint Hill Photo Contest.”

Hosted by the Chamber and sponsored by 1st Choice Properties, the contest aims to capture everything that represents the best of “Our Hometown” of Mint Hill.  “Every year, I enjoy seeing those photos and seeing the people that participate and what they bring,” says 1st Choice Properties Owner Anna Granger.  “I’m excited to be able to continue to help support the local community by highlighting both local talent and what makes our town of Mint Hill special.”

Photos can include events, people, landscapes, sunsets, nature or anything else that captures what makes Mint Hill such a special place to live, work and play.  The Chamber encourages photographers to capture moments from iconic Mint Hill events like the Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce Golf Classic, Mint Hill Madness, and the Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce Pop Up Christmas Shop.  They also hope to receive submissions that capture Mint Hill landmarks and events happening at local schools.
