Photographers of all skill levels are invited to participate in the City of Santa Clarita’s new quarterly photo contest. The first quarter contest is underway and submissions must be received by Sept. 30 to qualify.

The City of Santa Clarita is looking for images that depict the good life in Santa Clarita. The quarterly photo contest is an opportunity to showcase community life as seen by Santa Clarita residents.

“We want residents to help us capture what makes our community so unique,” said Mayor Marsha McLean. “We want to see and share Santa Clarita as seen through the eyes of its community members.”

Photo submissions should represent events, activities, and daily occurrences residents enjoy in their community. The photo contest is broken into six submission categories including: environment, architecture, people portraits, community life, altered images with artistic value, and photographs illustrating community issues. Regardless of skill level, all community members are encouraged to submit photos.

Winning photographs will be printed online at Santa-Clarita.com and in city publications, such as the City’s award-winning Seasons Magazine. Winning photographers will receive photo credit as well as cash prizes. First place photographers win $300, second place will win $150, and third place will win $50. City staff will judge photographs based on best representation within each category.

Participants must first register and join the Santa Clarita Photo contest group for free at: http://www.flickr.com/groups/santa-clarita-photo-contest. All photos are to be submitted to the Santa Clarita Photo Contest Flickr group.

Next quarter’s competition begins Oct. 1, with final submissions due by Dec. 31.

For more information on the Santa Clarita Photo Contest, contact Ryan Drake, the city’s IT analyst and webmaster, at 661-286-4075 or send e-mail to webmaster(at)santa-clarita.com.
