CVB Launches Selfie Contest


The Santa Clara Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is encouraging visitors to take selfies in front of Levi’s Stadium and at other visitor attractions and events throughout the city. The winner of the photo contest will receive two tickets to see the 49ers play the San Diego Chargers on December 20th. Runner-up prizes include six Target gift certificates and “Red Zone Rally” tailgate tickets.

The contest requires users to follow the CVB’s “Visit Santa Clara” Instagram page and also take a selfie with one of the “49 Awesome Things To Do in Santa Clara,” posting the photo using hashtag #SantaClara49. A user’s Instagram privacy setting must be turned off in order for the selfie photo to be viewed. You can find a complete list of the 49 suggested photo sites at

According to David Andre, Vice President of Marketing & Communications for the Santa Clara Convention and Visitors Bureau “our goal is to publicize the vast number of visitor attractions and events here in Santa Clara and to increase our number of Instagram followers.” The contest continues through mid-December.
