DMD launches ‘Love for Downtown’ Valentine’s Photo Contest

On Thursday, the El Paso Downtown Management District (DMD) launched a new contest for El Pasoans to share what they love about Downtown El Paso (DTEP) for a chance to win amazing Valentine’s inspired prizes from Downtown hotels and businesses.

“During these challenging times, it’s important to support our Downtown businesses and reconnect with the community by asking participants to remember why Downtown is so special. Not only will we get to see and share the love for Downtown, but we will also remind everyone about the impressive collection of hotels and businesses in the heart of the city,” shared Joe Gudenrath, DMD Executive Director.

“Visiting and supporting Downtown businesses in a responsible manner is more important than ever.”

 To participate, contestants need to visit, click on the contest banner, upload a photo of yourself in DTEP, and share what they love about Downtown. 

Sharing what you love about DTEP and a great photo will enter you for a chance to win an overnight stay at one of these great hotels: Plaza Hotel, Hotel Indigo, Gardner Hotel, and the Hotel Paso Del Norte with churros from Frontera Churros to complement the experience.

For one lucky winner, the grand prize package includes a Stanton Hotel Deluxe King size room one-night stay, dinner for two at Taft Diaz, a Blush Boutique Spa treatment for two to include Flotation Therapy and massage, and a photoshoot package by Christ Chavez Photography.

DMD officials add that restrictions may apply, night of stay is contingent on availability of hotel/s. Taft Diaz Restaurant credit is $150 and excludes any alcoholic beverages; flotation and massage sessions are contingent on availability of spa.

No purchase necessary. Prizes may not be exchanged for cash.  You must be 18 years of age or older at time of entry to be eligible for this contest.

The contest will run until February 10th, 2021 with winners announced on February 12th on the contest page and the DMD INSIDER Newsletter.
