Capture the essence of Claremont parks through photography

The Claremont Community and Human Services Department is looking for original photos from parks and recreation program users demonstrating the theme, “Parks Make Life Better.” Selected photos may be included as a supplement to the Winter Claremont Recreation & Activities Guide.

The California Parks and Recreation Society created the “Parks Make Life Better” branding campaign to be used by local parks and recreation agencies across the State. The program hopes to bring awareness to the benefits of parks and recreation throughout California. Contest categories include play, nature, exercise, positive spaces (socializing and learning) as well as forever (valued today and always). Participants in the Claremont contest are asked to keep submissions to one per category.

To submit your photo(s), email parks@ci.claremont.ca.us by Sunday, September 30, with “PMLB Photo Submission” in the subject line.

Participants are asked to include the location of the photo along with the photographer’s first and last name for photo credit. Photos must be 150 DPI or greater in JPEG format and emails must be less than 3MB. Participants submitting photography in several categories should use separate emails for each.

The city reminds the public that by submitting your photo, you agree that all photographed subjects have given their consent and that you authorize the city of Claremont to use your photo to publicize its programs and services without compensation and without further permission.

For more information, please contact Jason Lass, community and human services supervisor, at 399-5488.
