Empire State Realty Trust is having its seventh annual photo contest for photographers to share their "Empire State Building (ESB) Moment" and get the chance to win $5,000. For the first time, the contest will be open to participants not only in the United States, but also in Canada, and the United Kingdom.
In addition to the Grand Prize, those who submit photos will compete to win one of the eight weekly prizes and a Runner-Up prize of $1,500. Winners will also have their work displayed in the new Empire State Building Observatory.
"A picture is worth 1,000 words, and what better way to share a special 'ESB moment' than through a photographic memory," said Anthony E. Malkin, Chairman and CEO of ESRT. "We are excited to share unique, personal perspectives of ESB as seen through the eyes of our Guests, and to give our Guests a chance for their 15 minutes of fame through the display of their winning submissions in our new $160 million Observatory experience."
Fans of the Empire State Building may submit their photo entry via Instagram or Twitter by using the hashtag #ESBmoment and #contest. Entrants may also submit their photos using ESB's photo contest microsite www.esbphotocontest.com
Entries will be accepted through Friday, October 5, 2018, at 11:59 PM ET. Exterior and interior shots of the building will be accepted.
