The Chesapeake Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) is hosting its second annual "U.O.U. Photography Contest" leading up to National Travel & Tourism Week May 4-12. This contest encourages local residents and visitors to Chesapeake to snap a photo of a favorite place or activity in Chesapeake where they can go to relax or enjoy the city. 

League of Reston Artists might be interested in participating in this contest. It's simple and a great way for participants to see Chesapeake through a tourist's eyes and rediscover activities or places in the city that they love. All participants have to do is snap a photo with the letters "U.O.U." included in the photo and then submit the photo to Local experts familiar with the city will judge the contest photos and the top five winners will receive Visa gift cards ranging from $75-$350. 

"U.O.U." is an idea developed by the Chesapeake CVB as a play on the phrase "I.O.U." The term "U.O.U." encourages audiences to reward themselves and escape from their daily routine with a trip to Chesapeake to hike one of the many trails, paddle down the waterways or simply eat at a local restaurant or spend time with family at a nearby park.
