Update – we received a lot of great entries, but when it comes to picking a winner, there can be only one. Congratulations to Instagram user Crissibeth!


Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably aware that the North Carolina State Fair kicked off yesterday, and will run through October 25.

In honor of Raleigh’s greatest annual tradition (sorry, Slide the City!) we’re running a simple photo contest: all you have to do is take a picture somewhere at the fairgrounds between now and October 25, and post it to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #StateFairPhotoCon.

Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Twitter, where we’ll be sharing pictures over the next two weeks before we announce the winner.

Can you take a better picture than this? Probably.


The grand prize? A copy of the great book: “The North Carolina State Fair: The First 150 Years.” Plus bragging rights, because who wouldn’t want to boast about winning this prestigious contest?
