Instagram Photo Contest

  1. Send us your photos!

    The Town of Colchester has a monthly Instagram contest. Each month one winner is chosen to have their photo displayed on the town’s home page. To participate, take a photo of anywhere in Colchester that matches the monthly theme, use the #thecolchesterway, tag us, and use the location feature in the photo. All photographers will be credited for their work whenever their images are used. This is your chance to have your work seen by thousands!

    • The photos must be of Colchester, Vermont
    • Participants must meet the theme given by the Town of Colchester
    • Image must be appropriate for all ages
