The Balloon Council is proud to once again sponsor the #LiftUpSomebody Photo Contest in recognition of International Balloon Month, September 1-30, 2020.
Balloons have played an even more important role in our lives than usual this year by becoming a symbol of hope, survival, and community spirit throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Showcasing how balloons have been used to spread joy during this difficult time and encouraging the public to give balloons to support and “thank” those who have made a difference in their local communities will be the focus of the 2020 International Balloon Month #LiftUpSomebody Campaign and Photo Contest.
The campaign encourages people to “lift up” those around them using the positive power of balloons and then post and share those images on social media platforms using the hashtag #LiftUpSomebody. The best images will be awarded prizes from balloon industry sponsors.
Images must use #LiftUpSomebody and be shared to The Balloon Council Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages (@balloonsliftup). Photos can also be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
