Thanks to smartphone cameras, it’s never been easier to capture and share the unique charms of the Lone Star state. And thanks to a new photo contest sponsored by Four Seasons hotels in Texas, it’s also never been more rewarding.

Launching June 3, 2013, the “Capture Texas” photo contest – created by Four Seasons Hotel Austin, Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas and Four Seasons Hotel Houston – invites people to share what they love about Texas in photo form for a chance to win more than USD 18,000.00 in prizes.

To enter, participants must tweet an original photo along with a caption containing the hashtag #CaptureTX and the Twitter handle of the Texas Four Seasons hotel closest to the location of the photo – @FSAustin, @FSDallas or @FSHotelHouston. The subject of the photo can be a person, place or thing and filters – such as those found on Instagram – may be used. All entries must be received by June 30, 2013.

On July 8, 2013, following the review of the valid entries, 30 finalists will be named by the sponsors and awarded an overnight stay at a Four Seasons Texas property.

A public vote will then commence, during which fans will select their favorite from the 30 finalist photos. The finalist with the greatest number of votes on July 16, 2013 will be designated the Grand Prize Winner and receive a three-night stay at their choice of Four Seasons hotel in the continental US, roundtrip airfare for two and USD 500.00, among other prizes.

“Texas is going to look amazing through the eyes of our guests, and I look forward to seeing the unique and creative perspectives of our great state,” says Luis Argote, general manager at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas.
