Gaithersburg City Park Photo Contest

by MCS Staff

The Alliance for Parks of the Gaithersburg Parks, Arts and Recreation Corporation (G-PARC), along with the Department of Parks, Recreation & Culture, are pleased to announce the First Annual Photo Contest, designed to showcase the best of Gaithersburg’s Parks, Arts & Recreation. Photos should illustrate the connection between parks, arts & culture, and recreation in the City, and MUST be taken in a City Park. Photos should fall under one of the following themes.

  • Outdoor Activity (Getting Active in our Parks)
  • The Natural World (Plants & Animals in our Parks)
  • Lovely Landscapes (Scenic Views & Vistas)
  • Art in our Parks (Natural or Human-made)

The top 12 photos will be announced at the end of May. Winners will be selected by a panel of jurors comprised of local artists, members of G-PARC, & members of the City’s Public Information Office. In addition, a random winner will be chosen weekly during the month of May. All winners will be announced on Instagram & Facebook, and notified via social media channels. The objective of this contest is to expand G-PARC’s social media presence through photo documentation of our parks & what happens in them.

Photos will be exhibited virtually on the G-PARC webpage, and physically exhibited over the summer of 2022 at select local galleries. Select photos may also be used in print & digital publications produced by the City.

There is no fee to enter, and multiple entries will be accepted. Complete submission details can be found here. G-PARC board members, City staff, elected officials & their families are not eligible. For more information, please contact G-PARC.
