Indiana Dunes Mask-Uerade Video Contest

We’re hosting a Mask-Uerade party and you’re invited! The best part? There will be prizes!

Governor Eric Holcomb has signed an executive order stating that masks will be required whenever inside public indoor places and outdoors if social distancing isn’t feasible. If we’re all going to be wearing masks, why not have a little fun with it? How about a little fun and a chance to win prizes?

Sound good? Let’s do it!

It’s easy to enter the Indiana Dunes Mask-Uerade Video Contest. Just take a video or photo of yourself or someone you know wearing a mask outside anywhere in Porter County. Be sure the mask is covering your mouth and nose and remember to practice safe social distancing!

The video can be short and simple like these submissions…

or elaborate, using special effects or choreographed dance numbers…

It’s up to you!

Just post your photo or video on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram (as either a post or a story). Be sure to tag us @IndianaDunes and use the hashtag #maskthedunes so we will see your entry!

One thing to note, we will need at least 100 participants to give out prizes, so be sure to share with your friends!

Now the important part—prizes! Winners will be chosen by a combination of likes on your post and input from a panel of judges. The prizes will be $300 first place, $200 second place, and $100 for third place.

Gift cards to local businesses will also be given to honorable mentions:

  • $50 Don Quijote gift card
  • $25 Lifestyles gift card
  • and more to come…
