We want your agency to be highlighted on the cover of Parks & Recreation magazine! In March, we accepted photo submissions for our Park and Recreation Month Cover Contest, and the winner will be featured on the cover of the July issue in celebration of Park and Recreation Month. We were looking for photos that tell a great story about the impact that parks and rec has in your community, and with this year’s theme, “Game On,” we’d love to see photos that showcase the fun, playful and exciting offerings of your agency! The most compelling photos will be put to a public vote on Facebook May 20-24, 2019 — the photo with the most “likes” will win the coveted cover spot! We accepted submissions through March 30, 2019.

Here are some tips relating to photos:

  • Pick a photo with an interesting and compelling story behind it. A great photo should tell a great story. You can share this story in the comments section when you upload your photo.
  • Choose a photo that includes people.
  • 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
