Photo Project

  1. Thank you for participating in the City of Texarkana, Texas Photo Project. We'll be redesigning our city website in the fall of 2017, and want to collect as many citizen-contributed photographs as possible to include in the redesign. We hope to capture the vibrancy of our great city, and believe we have the talent, and artistic ability in our community to do just that.

  2. Here are a couple guidelines that we'd like you to keep in mind:

  3. Light is your friend. If a photo is dark, or there are shadows on the most important part of the work, we won't be able to use it.

  4. Show off our community! It's important to us that the photos chosen highlight the best parts our community. Think parks, community events, and the people who make up our lovely neighborhoods.

  5. Nobody likes grainy! Please make sure your photos are of the highest resolution. We only want the best!

  6. You don't have to be a professional! Smartphones have incredible resolution these days, so it isn't necessary to take photos with a DSLR camera. We welcome any level of photographer, whether novice or professional, to submit.

  7. Let's have some fun! We're not sure how great the prizes will be just yet, but we know they'll be good. We'll award three prizes overall, and recognize the winner in each category.

  8. Again, thank you for your participation. We really can't say it enough. You will make this contest amazing, and our website will be even better because of your cooperation. Thank you a million times!

  9. Photos should be submitted in highest resolution format possible, and without watermarks, logos, or branding of any kind. If your photo includes faces, it is understood that you are taking responsibility for gaining permission for the City to use the photo online. By submitting, you are acknowledging the photograph will be used on the City's website, Facebook, and for promotional purposes. Compensation nor photo credit will be given for the use of this photo. Remember, you'll need to submit a new form for each photo.

  10. Please tell us where the photos was taken (we especially want to know that it was taken in Texarkana, USA), what was happening in the photo, who is in the photograph (if applicable) and share any other relevant information regarding the photo.
