Do you have a camera and love taking photos of your parks?

If so, this contest is for you! Here is a chance to have your photos published and recognized. There are two ways to enter and two different categories. Read the following guidelines, fill out an application and send in those photographs! Be sure to follow us on Facebook to look at the competition and vote for your favorite!


All photos entered in the contest must be taken in Miami County Park District (MCPD) sites between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016. All contestants must be 14+ years of age (in compliance with Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule). We are looking for photographs with creativity, high photographic quality and effectiveness in the beauty and/or unique character of the Miami County Park District. 

Each month the top five in each category (professional and non-professional) will be selected by local photographers and then posted on Facebook for votes for one week. The winner (per likes on Facebook) in each category will be published in the local newspaper for that month and displayed as the Park District cover photo for two weeks. The monthly winners (12 total per category) will then be posted on Facebook in January 2017 for one week to choose a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place grand prize per category. This is where it’s important to share and have your friends like your photo on the Park’s Facebook album. 

 **Only likes on the photos in the Miami County Park District album will count, so if you share your favorite, make sure your friends and followers know to come to our page to like the photo (and not just like your status).**

Questionable or inappropriate content will not be considered. MCPD retains sole discretion as to what constitutes inappropriate content. A signed model release form must accompany photos containing recognizable people for each person in the photo.

If you’re interested in entering the contest please read the guidelines, fill out an application and send it your photographs today!

Thank You, Partners!
