Share your Photos with the Chamber

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

The Chamber is always grateful for any photographs that you may like to share for use in marketing purposes. It is delightful to receive photos, from visitors and locals alike, showing their favorite scenery, shops and businesses, or moments while in the area. If you'd like to provide photos to the Chamber for marketing use, please indicate who should receive photo credit (when applicable) and that you grant the AWACC permission to use the images in our own publications, as well as share them with media outlets covering our region. Digital photos taken with high resolution are best, as they can be reprinted in magazines and newspapers as well as used online. (Most current smart phones have ability to take high res images that are suitable.)

Chamber Chatter Photo Example

NEW PROGRAM: Chamber Chatter Weekly Photo

Each week we send the Chamber Chatter email newsletter to our entire membership and others who subscribe to find out what is happening in our area. The email includes a header image that we source from our members. Submit your photo to be considered for the Chamber Chatter.

Submit images that capture the beauty of our area, a hidden spot, a nice display in your store - variety is welcome.  Photos should not include text or be an advertisement. The caption will list the member who provided the image and link to your page in the Chamber's membership directory.

Use the uploader below to share your images directly.  Contact AWACC Marketing Manager Regina Willkie if you have questions at (503) 325-6311.

AWACC reserves the right to use all photo entries in our publications such as the Chamber Chatter weekly email, ChamberWorks monthly newsletter, our websites, social media, etc.  We may also share images with other publications - like a newspaper or magazine covering our region who asks us to help source images. By using the uploader, you can ensure that your name is tagged to your photo for credit.

There is no limit to pictures you can submit and we welcome images that represent landscapes, natural beauty, all seasons, interior and exterior of buildings/businesses, etc.  Please submit only local shots of images in and around the Astoria and Warrenton area. We love receiving pictures of people that represent our community. However, if you are providing photographs of people, you are implying that you have their consent.
