Last month, Scottsdale launched a photo contest in partnership with Capture My Arizona for people to capture the vibrant images of downtown Scottsdale.

The contest is now being extended to include photos posted to Instagram, according to a press release.

Photos tagged #downtownscottsdalepics will be monitored and pictures that best display the people, events and places of downtown Scottsdale will have a chance to win prizes, including gift certificates to downtown merchants.

Photos tagged with #downtownscottsdalepics between April 1 and April 20 will be considered and winners will be notified via their Instagram account.
