Niagara Falls Photo Wins Bing Hometown Homepage Photo Contest

New Bing logoAfter asking users to submit photos of their hometown back in August, Bing announced today Prasad Karkera’s photo of the Niagara Falls has won its Hometown Homepage Photo Contest.

Karkera’s photo was one of ten selected by Bing and then voted on via a public vote by Bing users. Taken from the New York State Observation Tower in Prospect Point Park on the Fourth of July, Karkera’s photo will be showcased on Bing’s homepage today, along with links to more information about Niagara Falls.

As the photographer of the winning photo, Karkera will be awarded a Nokia Lumia 1020 camera, 500px membership and a canvas of his winning photo. The photographer has also won a day of service in his hometown of Buffalo, New York, hosted by The Nature Conservancy.

According to the announcement, The Nature Conservancy and Bing will coordinate a volunteer event today in Buffalo’s Tifft Nature Preserve to “help beautify” the 264-acre nature refuge.
