Ready to see your agency highlighted on the cover of Parks & Recreation magazine?

We’re collecting photos that tell a great story for a chance to be featured on the July 2018 issue of Parks & Recreation in celebration of Park and Recreation Month. We’ll choose the top photos and put them to a public vote on Facebook. The photo with the most social power (likes) will win the coveted cover spot!

Timeline

  • March 30, 2018: photo submissions due 
  • April 20, 2018: finalists selected and notified
  • May 21, 2018: finalists put to public vote on Facebook
  • May 25, 2018: finalist with the most “likes” by 3 p.m. ET wins!

Tips for a Great Submission

  • 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.

 

Questions can be sent to Cort Jones at cjones@nrpa.org.
