We Would Like To Feature Your Photos in the Citizens Report
Each year at the Home Show the City of Maple Ridge unveils the Citizens Report that has become the ‘community yearbook’ for the previous year. The report details the City’s financial health, looks back on the events that shaped the year and reports from each of the divisions at City Hall.
This year, in celebration of the City celebrating its 140th Birthday and the change of designation from a District to a City, we’d like to create a photo essay that we will title ‘Your Maple Ridge’ in the 2014 Citizens Report. This is the formal kick off of the ‘Your Maple Ridge’ photo contest. We would like you to show us your favourite things about our community. The Communications team will then select images from the submissions for the final photo essay in the upcoming Citizens Report as well as photo galleries on social media that will be shared widely. The contest is open to all citizens past or present.
We are looking for high resolution photos, so the file size needs to be a minimum of one megabyte, up to a maximum of 8 megabytes (1000 KB - 8000 KB when you look at the file size in the properties). They can be colour or black and white and the subject matter is wide open. We ask that the photographer provide a short explanation of the location or setting of the photograph, along with their full name and contact phone number. You can submit your photos to enquiries@
mapleridge.ca, or mail or drop off a CD to the City marked ‘Your Maple Ridge Photo Contest.’ Please do not ‘watermark’ the photos. By entering the contest you agree to have them published in the Citizens Report, placed on the City website and social media channels. Credit will be given in the publication. We will contact you if your image will be used in print or online. Enough with the rules and regulations – let’s start gathering those amazing images!
What do you like best about Maple Ridge? Is it a sunset or sunrise? An old abandoned barn? A photo of your child’s soccer or hockey team? Perhaps you love a coffee and pastry from a local eatery? The subject matter is completely up to you. From a close-up of a flower to a vista of the Golden Ears, we are expecting some stunning images.
This is your Maple Ridge. Let’s share it with the world!
