Destination Salem is collaborating with Creative Collective (the team behind Creative North Shore) on a daily photo challenge, beginning in February, and running through December 2022. The idea came about as a way to provide a fun outlet to share photos of Salem with the community.
Visitors, residents, and businesses are invited to celebrate Salem in 2022 by posting a photo on social media that relates to the daily theme on the calendar found here.
The posts must tag @destsalem and @creativenorthshore using the hashtag #SalemPhotoChallenge. Destination Salem and Creative Collective will repost and share their favorite images each day and photos will feed into the Salem Photo Challenge page on salem.org. The next month’s calendar will be posted on salem.org/photochallenge a few days prior to the 1st of each month.
Photos can show any interpretation of each daily theme and how it relates to Salem. Participants can post daily, or just on the days with themes that speak to them. New photos or pictures from previous trips are welcome. Older photos should include the year in the caption so everyone can enjoy a trip down memory lane.
