We wrapped up our first ever Instagram Takeover this last Sunday, December 11th. Our Instagram was taken over by the incredibly artistic, Dmitrii Ratanov. Dmitrii is a Russian native who started art school at the young age of nine years old. Champaign County receives visitors from all over the world, which lead us to open this platform up with a worldly traveler like Dmitrii. We would like to open this opportunity to others like you, who have the aesthetic talents to capture Champaign County from your drawing perspectives. We are seeking amateur photographers with little to no technical experience to highly qualified and trained professionals who are willing to contribute pro bono. Champaign County looks and feels different to just about everyone and we want to connect and reach our audiences with more perspectives than ever. Are you passionate about the things that make up Champaign County, Arthur, & Monticello? Do you think your perspective of this Outside of Ordinary area should be seen to a larger audience? If interested, please reach out to our Community Relations Manager, Cody Dees at firstname.lastname@example.org with links to your current Instagram account and a brief idea of why you feel you should be showcased. We believe the outside of ordinary talents that exist here should be discovered and showcased, just like the events, attractions, festivals, technology, and businesses are.
