Okay, this is one of the wackier promotions we’ve heard of in awhile. The Leadville Inn is having a photography contest to give itself away. In a difficult economic market, owners Tracey Lauritzen and Dan Houtchens have gotten creative in their efforts to unload the property in an attempt to ultimately travel to the high-altitude town.

Here’s how it works: Snap a pretty picture (it looks like it can be a photo of anything, but no nudie shots, please!) and enter it into the contest by August 31st, 2009 (midnight Mountain Time) with an entry fee of $275. Contest organizers are only accepting 3000 entries and you must at least be 18 years old as of the date of entry. There is a whole lot of legalese on the online contest page, but it all looks legit, so give it a quick gander before you enter. Entries will be evaluated by three independent judges.
