Ruralite Cover Contest

Would you like to see your photo on the cover of Ruralite Magazine, CVEA’s primary communication tool? Over 2500 copies of Ruralite are distributed each month to members in the Copper Basin and Valdez. That means excellent exposure for local photographers! Winners receive $100 per winning photo, are featured on the cover one month throughout year, and are announced to the local media and featured on Facebook and cvea.org. Photographers must receive service from CVEA and all photos must be from within the CVEA service area. Click the links for additional information.
