COOS BAY — The newest craze in technology is Snapchat Spectacles, which hit the market this week and will enable people to take video or photos and upload them directly to their phones.
The Coos Bay-North Bend Visitor and Convention Bureau is giving away five sets of the glasses through its #3ACoosBay promotion during the Class 3A state tournament.
Athletes and fans are encouraged to take pictures from the tournament and their team experiences this week and upload them to either Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #3ACoosBay. Those who do will be automatically entered into the contest.
RJ Benner, the executive director of the VCB, said the promotion encourages people to “capture the spirit of the games and the essence of the coast.”
Pictures can include team outings, game action, fan moments or anything else that sums up the tournament experience.
“What embodies the coast, and also the games themselves,” Benner said. “We want to be able to capture and share those moments.”
The VCB staff will share its favorite submissions on its own Instagram and Twitter accounts for Travel Coos Bay (@TravelCoosBay), Benner said.
The winners also will be announced on those accounts next week.
