If you have a love for photography and the borough of Queens, we have a contest that’ll make you smile in a flash.
The Queens Courier and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation are teaming up to present the “Salute to People in Queens Parks” photo contest. We’re looking for photographers of all levels to submit their best photos people enjoying themselves at Queens parks.
The contest is divided into two categories: groups and individuals. It will showcase men, women and children enjoying everything that Queens parks has to offer.
Each category has 12 finalists, and all finalists will have their pictures on display at the Queens Museum as part of a special exhibit. One finalist from each category will be selected as overall finalists for the grand prize: a $100 gift card to a fine dining establishment in Queens. The second overall finalist will receive a $75 dining gift card, and the third overall finalist will receive a $50 dining gift card.
The “Salute to People in Queens Parks” photo contest is open now; all entries must be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org (subject: Salute to People in Queens Parks) or on our Instagram page, www.instagram.com/QNSgram with the hashtag, #salutetoqueensparks. All entries must be submitted by Friday, Oct. 13, 2017.
No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. Employees of Schneps Communications or its subsidiaries and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation are not eligible to participate.
