JACKSBORO, TN (SPECIAL TO WLAF) – The Campbell County Chamber of Commerce and Tourism has been selected as a recipient of the Rural Tourism Video and Photography Asset Program through partnership with the TN Department of Tourist Development (TDTD).  This program was available for counties designated as distressed or at-risk per the current or previous three fiscal years.

In partnership with Designsensory, TDTD will provide free photography and video assets to Campbell County, one of 20 rural counties selected as a part of the first round.

The grant value is $16,500 and will include two days of production that will provide over 100 retouched, still photographs and a scripted one to two minute finished video with music and voice over that will be used to promote tourism in Campbell County.

Chamber Executive Director, Missy Tackett, and Administrative Assistant, Rebekah Wasson, met with scouts on September 14, 2022, to view locations across Campbell County.
