Welcome to Discover Yakima Valley: Shoot The Cover!
Each year we work to select a photo for the cover of Discover Yakima Valley that captures what it means to live and play in our valley. 

During our discussions of which photo should be selected, we realized that it should not be us who selects the photo, but you. You live, work and play in the Yakima Valley and you know what image would be the best to capture what this means.  

That is what we are going to do for the 2014 edition of Discover Yakima Valley: let you shoot and choose what photo is going to be on the cover!

How it works:

  • Upload your photos here until Sept. 30.
  • Up to 20 finalists will be announced in December.
  • Voting will be open from Jan. 1, 2014 through March 31, 2014
  • Winner announced in the 2014 edition of Discover Yakima Valley, which will publish during the spring.
