The Democrat seeks best ‘Delfie’ in contest

Staff Reports • Dec 17, 2015 at 6:17 PM

The Lebanon Democrat redefined the selfie for an upcoming online contest, and the grand prize winner will receive a free teeth whitening session with Gregory Dental Group.

“From Ellen Degeneres shutting down Twitter after her photo as host of the Oscars went viral to just about everywhere you look, the selfie has changed the way we look at and take pictures,” said Jared Felkins, editor of The Democrat. “We want to give our local community the chance to showcase their selfies, as well as pick the best, most creative or interesting one.”

The best Democrat selfie – or Delfie – will be the selfie that receives the most votes at a special page at lebanondemocrat.com during the first week of May. To upload a potential Delfie, simply visit and “like” The Democrat’s Facebook page and share the selfie there. The hashtag, #Delfie, may also be used, but The Lebanon Democrat should be linked on those entries.

Entries will be accepted at The Democrat’s Facebook page until April 30. Once all entries are received during the contest period, they will be collected and uploaded onto The Democrat’s website at lebanondemocrat.com/delfie, where everyone will be able to vote on their favorites through May 8. The top vote-getting Delfie will be announced May 9, and the winner will receive the grand prize.

“We are looking for the cream of the crop selfies, because only one will be the true Delfie,” Felkins said. “We appreciate Gregory Dental Group for its generosity in supplying the grand prize. Of course, bragging rights are one thing, but a teeth whitening session from Gregory Dental Group is a fantastic incentive and goes hand in hand with selfies.”
