Generation to Generation Sponsors Contest
Back Mountain families will be in focus this fall when the Dallas Harvest Festival hosts a family-oriented photo contest. The contest, sponsored by Generation-to-Generation (G2G), will put local family photos – old and new – front and center and offer cash prizes for winners, too.
Dubbed the Year of the Family, this year’s Dallas Harvest Festival will offer entrants the opportunity to showcase Back Mountain family photos in one of three categories: Best Overall Family Photo, Most Generations in a Photo, and the Most Historic Family Photo. Each category will be recognized with first, second and third place winners.
