Visit Claremore is proud to announce the June photo contest winner.  Debbie James, a 22-year resident of Claremore, snapped this photo of historic Dot’s Cafe.

Downtown Claremore inspired her winning entry. “Downtown Claremore is a great place for an evening stroll,” James added.  “There is a peacefulness to it, and you get to enjoy our beautiful sunsets.”

Visit Claremore launched a photography contest in May challenging people on social media to share photos of their favorite Claremore destinations using the hashtags #VisitClaremore and #2021PhotoContest.  The contest runs through July, and new entries will be accepted through July 31, 2021.

James will receive a summertime prize package including a cooler, gift certificates to Claremore’s new Aldi’s, Walke Brothers Meat Company and Nabatak, Wicked Big soccer ball, Summer Vibes decorative stake, plus essentials for the perfect outdoor barbecue!  Her photo is also featured on the VisitClaremore.org home page.

“The entries this month were incredible and it’s great to see so many interesting expressions of Claremore” said Tanya Andrews, director of Visit Claremore. “We were particularly inspired by Debbie’s shot because it really demonstrates what makes Claremore unique.”
