Chattanooga’s newest "industrial chic" apartment community is launching a campaign to highlight the city’s historical landmarks. “Make Your Mark” will give both professional and amateur photographers an opportunity to capture the building blocks of Chattanooga and have their work displayed inside the historical Clemons building.
Beginning Oct. 1 and lasting through Oct. 30, participants are encouraged to take high-resolution photographs of Chattanooga’s best-known characteristics and submit them via Facebook for consideration. The Clemons team will select five winners to have their photograph displayed on an elevator wrap inside the Clemons building. The pictures will be displayed in black and white or sepia tones.
The focal points for submission are the Tennessee Aquarium, Lookout and Signal Mountain, Market Street Bridge, the Chattanooga Choo Choo, Incline and the Tivoli Theater.
Winners will be asked to attend a special VIP reception where they will sign their art and receive 50 percent off one month’s rent. The offer can be used by the artist or transferred to a person of their choosing. The winners will also receive a $100 gift card. Winners will be announced Nov. 2.
By participating in the contest, winners give the Clemons and its owner, ViaNova Development, permission to use the image on site in addition to any future marketing efforts by the Clemons or ViaNova. The winner will retain the original artwork for his or her use. Pictures must be submitted in high resolution.
