Thru May 31
The St. Johns Cultural Council is launching #ShareArtHCC “Art Is ___”, an Instagram-based campaign that asks residents and travelers to submit images of what they view as art and culture in St. Johns County using the hashtag #ShareArtHCC and by tagging @HistoricCoastCulture.
Participants who submit a photo will also be entered into a #ShareArtHCC contest. Contest entries will be accepted from March 1 to May 31. Prizes include a St. Augustine vacation package including a three day, two night stay at The Collector Luxury Inn and tickets and passes to arts and culture experiences in the county.
Images gathered from the #ShareArtHCC hashtag will be curated for use in a national advertising campaign in the summer and fall of 2019. The Cultural Council and a panel of local experts will select winning images based on relevancy of theme, quality of content and originality. The Cultural Council expects the campaign will help highlight the county’s arts, culture and heritage offerings and inspire residents to participate in the area’s vibrant community arts scene.
“More and more, visitors are turning to social media platforms for travel inspiration,” says St. Johns Cultural Council Director Andrew Witt. “Instagram provides St. Johns County a unique platform to show off the beauty of our community, and with this campaign, we’ll be able to show a different side of our county, inspiring new travelers and return visitors.”
“St. Johns is a vibrant county where beautiful and meaningful art experiences happen every day,” says Kathe O’Donnelly, assistant director of the Cultural Council. “By tapping into the creativity of residents, this campaign will help us find and share these experiences with a broader audience locally, nationally and around the world.”
