February 17, 2011 at 3:05 PM (PT)
CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL past attendees are now able to submit their event photographs online to create an on-going photo archive. Submitted photos will be considered for use on CMA websites, publications, displays, exhibits and more.
For the first time, CMA will hold a contest on www.cmafest.com, with six submitted photos to be used as the artwork on the official event tickets for the 2011 CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL. The contest will began TODAY (2/17) and runs though MARCH 7th. Prizes will be awarded to submitting fans, including framed 40th anniversary CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL plaques with a ticket containing their photograph displayed for the top three photos; merchandise prize packs and more. The Grand Prize winner will also receive two Gold Circle four-day tickets to the 2012 festival.
"Everyone that has attended CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL in the past has taken hundreds of photos that captured their experience," said STEVE MOORE, CMA CEO. "An event ticket containing one of these photos is a great way to celebrate our 40th anniversary while also providing a permanent souvenir to every ticketholder.”
CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL started as FAN FAIR in 1972 at NASHVILLE's MUNICIPAL AUDITORIUM; moved to the TENNESSEE STATE FAIRGROUNDS in 1982; moved to its current home, DOWNTOWN NASHVILLE in 2001; and changed its name to CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL in 2004. The 2011 CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL will take place in DOWNTOWN NASHVILLE on JUNE 9th-12th.
"It would be amazing if each photo chosen to be on the event ticket showcased a different aspect of the Festival at a different point in its history," said WENDY PEARL, CMA VP/Corporate Communications and Exec. Editor of CMA CLOSE UP. "We are hoping this new Festival photo archive will be as complete as possible, showcasing the entire breadth of the event from 1972 onward, so that we can fully document this amazing and iconic event for all to see. CMA appreciates the fans and past attendees searching through their scrapbooks for photos to submit."
