We recently called on all our local JackFM listeners to hit us with their best ‘Missoula’ shot for a chance to win a concert ticket package, and boy did you deliver!
We received nearly 100 unique entries, with photos ranging from majestic mountaintop shots to personal stories to the cheeky “only in Missoula” types.
Needless to say, picking a winner was hard.
We like to draw our winners randomly, but for this contest we wanted to give a bonus boost to those with great photos. So this time we picked a small number range randomly, and then from those selections picked our favorite photo.
We’re excited to announce Donna Mitchell as our winner. Donna sent in what appears to be a beautiful retro-style wedding photo shot at the grizzly bear statue on the UM campus.
It’s uniquely Missoula for two reasons: One, it depicts the gorgeous campus, including Main Hall and the zigzag trail up to the M. But also, it captures love. With all the bitterness and in-fighting and fear going on in the world today, there’s plenty to celebrate about small moments of serenity like this.
So congrats, Donna, and thank you for participating. We will be blowing this up into a high-quality print and framing it over at Frame of Mind, and in addition to free tickets to see Melissa Etheridge and Pat Benatar at the new Kettlehouse Amphitheater we’ll also award you a $50 gift certificate to the gallery.
