Your Places. Your Spaces. Our Community.
There is so much to love about the greater Champaign County area. Whether you're a live music junkie, spending time at all of our fantastic indoor and outdoor venues, or you're a culinary connoisseur, enjoying the diverse and local flavors found throughout the area, there is something here that you can call "Your Place."
We want to know these places and spaces that bring you joy so we can share them with everyone who lives, works and visits our community. So we're asking you to share your photos and videos of you out and about enjoying the greater Champaign County area.
We're taking your submissions through April 15, 2022 and we'll select up to eight submissions to be featured in our future marketing such as our annual Champaign County Area Experience Guide, on billboards, in advertising and promotional videos, and on our website.
Winners will receive:
- Professional photo shoot at one of your favorite local destinations
- Community t-shirt
- Gift card to a local business
We want to see photos of you, your family, you and your partner, or you and your friends doing the things you love to do in this place we call home. Here's some inspiration:
- Enjoying your favorite dish at a local restaurant
- Shopping local ingredients at area farmer's markets or at a local grocery store
- Kayaking or hiking in one of our many preserves
- Supporting the Fighting Illini or Parkland Cobras
- Playing at a local park
- Listening to live music
- Visiting a museum
- Spotting public art
