Catholic United Financial invites everyone to show their “Hometown Pride” in Photo Contest

ST. PAUL, MN – Catholic United Financial is hosting a photo contest to showcase and celebrate the unique, memorable, natural, or historic cities, towns, and neighborhoods we serve in the five-state area. The theme of the photo contest is “Hometown Pride”. Catholic United wants to share your photographic evidence of why your hometown or neighborhood is a hidden treasure of the Upper Midwest!

What do we mean by “Hometown Pride”? Photos like a landmark or hidden waterfall in your area, a scenic picture of your Church, your favorite part of the local county fair, a colorful float in a neighborhood parade, or a picture of family fun at a local attraction. When you submit you photo, please let us know how your image fits our theme and what it means to you.

We need photo submissions in full color, sharp focus and high resolution. Photos can be current or from the past, and can include or exclude people. Each person can submit up to three photos for consideration. Selected photos from the submissions will be featured and shared in a special 2022 calendar available to all members and friends of Catholic United Financial.

Participants may submit up to three photos with a description explaining how each photo fits the contest theme. Submissions will be accepted from July 2nd to Sept. 1st, 2021. Winners will be announced on Sept. 10th, 2021.
