We Want Your Photos

We want your photos for our 2016 Community Calendar Photo Contest!

We are looking for photos that highlight the things you are passionate about. This can be photos from a family vacation, a hiking trip, a day at the lake, or simply photos from your backyard. There are no restrictions on where the photo is taken or the subject matter, so get creative and have fun!

We are also changing up how we choose the winning photos. Instead of us choosing the winning photos, we are letting you decide! Once the photo submission period has ended (September 30th), we will post all qualifying photos to our Heartland Bank Facebook page. Anyone is eligible to vote. Simply "Like" the photo that you want to vote for. If you've submitted a photo, then be sure to share our post to your friends and encourage them to vote for your photo! Voting will end on Thursday, October 15th at 12:00 pm CST.


Grand Prize - The photographer who submits the photo that receives the most votes will win a $500 Southwest Airlines® gift card. Runner-up Prize - The photographer who submits the photo that receives the second most votes will win a GoPro® Hero3 HD Camera. Facebook Voting - Simply “Like” the photos that you want to vote for.
