With Valentine’s Day approaching, the Star is holding a contest for you to show your love for our town and that special someone in your life.

Participants in our “Kissing in the Kootenays” competition will upload a picture of themselves and their sweetie kissing in front of a local landmark.

Take your digital camera up Pulpit Rock, to Whitewater Ski Resort, the waterfront — or anywhere else around town — and get a photo of you kissing your partner, child, pet or friend. Then upload the shot on our Facebook wall at facebook.com/nelsonstarnews and start spreading the word to get your friends to “like” the picture.

The person whose picture has the most “likes” by noon on Valentine’s Day will win a $100 gift certificate to All Season’s Cafe and flowers from Bella Flora.

The Star will also print some of the submitted photos in the paper.

To post a photo on our Facebook wall click over to our Facebook page and “like” our page. Then find the text box where you would write a comment and select the “photo/video” icon above the box. Click “attach a photo” then use the browse button to find the photo on your computer. Click “post” to send the photo to our wall. After the photo is posted, you can tag yourself in it and use the share function to post it to your own wall and start collecting likes.

The Star reserves the right to remove photos we deem inappropriate for our audience.

The contest starts now. So, get that photo and start collecting your likes!
