2018 January NRPA Update Discover Yourself on the Cover of PR magazine 410

Round up your top photos and get ready to submit them for the 2018 Park and Recreation Month Cover Contest. As we prepare to celebrate Park and Recreation Month in July, yours could be the photo chosen to be featured on the cover of Parks & Recreation magazine. As always, we’re looking for photos that tell a great story about the impact parks and recreation has in your community. And, this year, we’d love to see the unique programs your agency has to offer.

Entries will be accepted now through March 30, 2018. By April 20, NRPA will choose a series of finalists based on how well they meet the criteria. All finalist photos will be put to a public vote May 21–25 on Facebook. The photo with the most social power (likes) will be chosen for the coveted cover spot!

When considering which photo to submit, keep these tips in mind:

  • Submit a photo with an interesting and compelling story behind it — maybe of a unique program or community event. A great photo should tell a great story. You can share this story in the comments section when you upload your photo.

  • Submit a photo that includes people in it.

  • Submissions must be high-resolution (at a minimum of 300 dpi) and at least 9.25 inches wide by 11 inches tall.

  • Consider how the Parks & Recreation logo will fit over your photo.
