Ascent Uptown Is Launching A Photo Contest w/ Over $3,000 In Prizes #UptownStunner



If you have enjoyed being in Uptown Charlotte near Romare Bearden Park anytime this past year or so, your eyes have undoubtedly been drawn to the beautiful 33-story high-rise on the corner of 3rd Street and S. Poplar that has deservedly earned the social media hashtag, #UptownStunner.  We are talking about Ascent Uptown, Charlotte’s newest and most opulent apartment community set to open June/July 2017.  

In celebration of their summer opening and inspired by their dedication to community involvement, Ascent Uptown is about to give away over $3,000 in prizes to the top three winners of their first ever #UptownStunner Photo Contest!  The contest is open to anyone with a camera (or smartphone) and a social media account.  

Here is how you enter the contest:

Simply take a picture of the new Ascent Uptown building from your favorite angle, then upload it on social media using #UptownStunner.  You are encouraged to be as creative as you like in your photography.  Feel free to include yourself, friends and family, your pets or find different angles and perspectives, capture some daytime pics and a few nighttime pics as well.  The contest is wide-open to your interpretation and artistic expression!
