Nextdoor’s #LoveYourNeighborhoodContest returns with new categories

Written by Team Nextdoor

Today, Nextdoor is launching the next edition of the #LoveYourNeighborhoodContest! This easy-to-enter photography contest invites neighbors nationwide to share an image that captures the people, places, features, and – new this year – creatures that make neighborhoods from coast to coast special.

Starting today through May 15, 2023, U.S. neighbors can enter by simply posting an image to Nextdoor with the hashtag #LoveYourNeighborhoodContest.

Following the success of last year’s competition which inspired more than 24,000 entries globally, this season’s #LoveYourNeighborhoodContest introduces new categories:

  • #NeighborhoodCreatures – Furry, feathered, four-legged, scaled, winged, and everything in between – capture the cutest members of the animal kingdom and your neighborhood.
  • #NeighborhoodsEverywhere – From vacations abroad to a trip back to your hometown for the holidays, submit your best shots of neighborhoods that have your heart, even if you don’t live there year-round.
  • #NeighborhoodFans – Capture the energy and excitement of when neighbors come together, from a local sports event to a community performance.
  • #NeighborhoodFaves – Local businesses are the cornerstone of every neighborhood. From your favorite farmer’s market to your daily coffee shop, shoutout to support your favorite local go-to’s.
  • #NeighborhoodGems – One-of-a-kind murals, secret hiking paths, off-the-beaten-path parks. Show us the ‘only in my neighborhood’ local spots that make your neighborhood unique.

Neighbors can enter as many times as they like using the hashtag #LoveYourNeighborhoodContest and one of the five category hashtags that best describes their submission. Every post may be a chance to win!

After the entry period closes on May 15th, a panel of judges will then review the entries and select five finalists – one for each category. Then, neighbors will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite finalist photo and ultimately select the grand prize winner.

The overall grand prize winner will snag a prize package including a professional camera kit. All winners will receive a prize package including gift cards and a one-year MasterClass subscription, to continue honing their photography pursuits!
