Kevin Mommer won the 2019 Directory Photo Contest

Alpine Communications is looking for unique photos that represent the communities we serve, so we can put them on the cover of our 2020-2021 Northeast Iowa Regional Telephone Directory. Thousands of copies are distributed around Northeast Iowa, Southern Minnesota, and Southwest Wisconsin during the year.

Alpine’s Directory Photo Directory Contest is open to amateur photographers at all levels of experience. Our goal is to highlight the natural beauty and scenic settings that surround us while promoting the art of local photography. The winning photographer will receive a $50.00 Alpine Communications gift certificate. All entries will be featured on Alpine’s website and social media pages.


  • Entries are open to Alpine Communications customers of all ages.
  • Photos must have been shot within Alpine Communications’ serving areas of Elkader, Elgin, Guttenberg, Garnavillo, Garber, Marquette, McGregor, and the surrounding rural areas.
  • Photos must have been shot within the past three years.
  • Digital photos must be high-resolution, at least 300 dpi, and formatted as a .jpg, .pdf, .bmp, .eps, .tif, or .gif. Scanned or hard copy photo entries will not be accepted.
