First Annual Buckhorn Photo Contest
win a 2-night stay for two and your photo in the Buckhorn!*
As part of the Buckhorn’s renovation, we want to honor and celebrate the history of this community landmark, established in 1952, as well as our greater community. To do this we are focusing on displaying photography and art that celebrates our beautiful Cuyama Valley and the community that has supported the Buckhorn for more than half a century.
But we need your help! Please submit your favorite new or old photograph of/at Cuyama Buckhorn, the Cuyama Valley, Los Padres National Forest, Highway 166, New Cuyama, Highway 33, or anything else that comes to mind when you think of Cuyama and the Cuyama Buckhorn.
The best of the best submissions will be displayed throughout the restaurant, bar, and hotel. We will also choose one Grand Prize winner whose photo will be printed and put up prominently in the Buckhorn and will receive a two-night stay at Cuyama Buckhorn for two people. One Honorable Mention winner will receive a dinner for 2 at The Buckhorn (valued at $75). The dinner and hotel stay may be redeemed throughout 2019. Winners will be announced via our social media platforms and email by January 4, 2019.
The small print: Please submit photos in the highest quality possible so that they can be printed in high quality! If you have slides or negatives of old photographs, make sure to note that you have those when you email us--we can digitize these images for you! If you do not use email, you may mail in or bring by a physical copy of the photo you wish to submit. Photos must be submitted by midnight on December 31st!
Please email your submission to email@example.com with the subject “Photo Contest.”
