Visit High Point Photo Contest

Visit High Point is updating the Official High Point Destination Guide. The guide will be larger in size than previous guides  and include large imagery, user generated content, featured stories and listings of places to stay, dine and experience while in the area. The guide will be shared with out-of-town visitors, and distributed to all area hotels, PTI Airport, North Carolina Welcome Centers, HPU families, market attendees and be included in welcome bags, relocation and furniture shopping packets.

Here’s where you come in! Visit High Point is hosting a photo contest for the cover of this year’s Destination Guide.

Through November 8th, 2022, we are inviting the public to enter their most eye-catching High Point photo in the competition. The contest winner will not only have their photo featured on the cover of the destination guide, but they will also receive a $200 Visa Gift Card.
