2017 #AlpineTXPhoto Contest

The City of Alpine is pleased to announce the opening of entries for the 2017 #AlpineTXPhoto Contest!

Free and open to the public, this annual contest is an opportunity for our visitors from near or far as well as local community members to showcase their photographs and videos.

Participants are asked to capture the city of Alpine, Texas (and/or its surroundings) in a personal, reflective way to reveal the personality of the town through their eyes. The city itself has a rich history, a variety of architectural and natural landmarks and scenic views of all types and sizes. Through the artist’s own lens and outlook, Alpine’s persona will bloom with high-quality, inspired and surprising imagery.

Entrants have the chance to win one of the following cash prizes.

  • H.L. Kokernot, Jr. Memorial Award – $500
    (named in honor of the creator of the remarkable Kokernot Field, home of the Alpine Cowboys baseball team)
  • Henry Charles Trost Memorial Award – $100
    (named in honor of the principal designer for Trost & Trost, architects of the historic Holland Hotel and many other signature buildings throughout the region)
  • Twin Sisters Award – $50
  • Hancock Hill Award – $50
  • “A” Mountain Award – $50
