2018 Directory Photo Contest

Your Photo Could Be Famous

Take a shot at getting your photo on our 2018-2019 directory cover!

Alpine Communications is looking for amazing photos that represent the communities we serve, so we can put them on the cover of our 2018-2019 Northeast Iowa Regional Telephone Directory. Thousands of copies are distributed around Northeast Iowa, Southern Minnesota, and Southwest Wisconsin during the year and all winning images are proudly displayed on the walls of Alpine’s office at 923 Humphrey Street in Elkader.

Alpine’s Photo Directory Contest is open to amateur photographers at all levels of experience. Our goal is to highlight the natural beauty and scenic settings that surround us while promoting the art of local photography. The winning photographer will receive a $50 Alpine Communications gift certificate. As a thank you, each person will receive one 5×7 print of one of their entries.
