Wildomar announces start to calendar photo contest


WILDOMAR — The City of Wildomar invites amateur and professional photographers of all ages to submit their best images celebrating our community, in the third Calendar Photography Contest.
Residents are asked to their best photos between Sept. 26 and Oct. 14 to be judged for publishing in the city’s 2020 calendar.
Eligibility: All residents and visitors of Wildomar are eligible to submit up to two photos. Twelve photos will be chosen, with selection limited to one per person.
Criteria: This year’s calendar theme is “Go Wildomar!” Photos should spotlight what you love about the community, thus all photos entered must be taken within city limits or directly adjacent hills and mountains. Photos taken of locations outside of Wildomar will be disqualified. For best quality, be sure to set your camera or smartphone settings to its highest resolution. Submitted photos will be judged by a subcommittee comprised of the mayor, city manager and community services staff.
What to enter: The following are some photo categories to consider for your photographs: Wildomar‘s environment, architecture, cityscapes, skylines, infrastructure, community activities, volunteering, nightlife, open spaces, trails, parks, wildlife, landmarks, celebrations, arts and cultural events, active people, involvement and all other community aspects that showcase “Go Wildomar!”
Eligible images: Eligible images must be taken in landscape orientation and submitted in either JPG or PNG file format, preferably at a minimum file size of 3 MB (megabytes). Be sure to set your camera or smartphone settings to its highest resolution for best results, as images selected for calendar print will be scaled to fit the size of one 8.5 inch by 11 inch piece of paper.
Renaming files:  Files must be renamed as follows: First and last name of contestant and short title of the photograph. Example: DanielTorresWindsongPark.jpeg
