Living in Reno photo contest


CITY OF RENO NEWS — What does Reno mean to you? Don’t tell us. Show us! Whether it’s the mountains, city, people, University, or other symbols, Reno means something a little different to each of us.
Your vision could be the centerpiece of the City of Reno’s brand new website, Reno.gov, which will re-launch in September.

From August 6 through August 26, the City of Reno will be collecting photos of what life in the Biggest Little City in the World means to you. Simply snap a shot that represents what you love about Reno, and send it our way! There are two ways to enter:

• Pinterest. Upload your photo to Pinterest, and send the pin, along with your name and phone number, to [email protected]. The City of Reno will pin your photo to our Living in Reno board and you will be entered to win. Make sure to tell your friends to “like” your photo at pinterest.com/cityofreno as there is a People’s Choice Award as well.

• Email. Send your photo, along with your name and phone number, via email, to [email protected]. The City of Reno will upload it, with your byline, to our Living in Reno board and you’ll be officially entered.

A panel from the City’s Communication and Community Engagement team will review all the entries and select the top three. From there, the finalist photos will move to the Reno City Council, who will choose the winner. In addition, there will be a People’s Choice Award for the photo with the most likes on Pinterest. The top three photographers and the People’s Choice will be presented with a matted, framed copy of their winning entry at the September 4 City Council Meeting, and their photos will be featured on the front page of our new Reno.gov website, launching in September. The winning entry and the People’s Choice will also receive four tickets, plus a parking pass, to the Wolf Pack football game against UC Davis on Saturday, September 7, 2013!

This contest is open to photographers worldwide of all ages, including City of Reno employees, except contest judges and their immediate families. Submissions must be high quality images, using at least a 3 megapixel camera or better. For more detailed information about the Living in Reno Photo Contest visit Reno.gov.

The Living in Reno Photo Contest is a result of a suggestion that was submitted by a resident on ThinkReno.org. Be part of making Reno a better place by sharing your ideas at ThinkReno.org.
