The two outlet malls — St. Louis Premium Outlets opened on Thursday last week — have been rivals for the public's attention since it was announced more than a year ago that both would be built in the Chesterfield Valley.
Taubman's contest, dubbed "Capture your Creative Outlet," is built to recognize winners in three categories: St. Louis Scene; Fashion Style; and Canine Cutie (the Taubman outlet is noteworthy for welcoming dogs on site).
The contest is open to anyone 18 and over. Photos may be entered via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. The deadline is Friday. More info here.
Readers of the mall's Facebook page will get to vote for their favorite pictures among three finalists in each category from Sept. 9-22.
The top overall vote-getter wins the grand prize: a trip for two to either the Taubman shopping center in Los Angeles or Miami, along with a $1000 shopping spree.
