Calling all shutterbugs

The City of Moreno Valley is conducting its 1st Annual Photo Contest. The Contest, which is free and open to amateur photographers, is designed tohighlight the best of the Moreno Valley community as seen through the eyes of local photographers. The theme is “People and Places in Moreno Valley.”

The Photo Contest runs from August 1 to October 31, 2008, and 13 winners will be announced in November and recognized at a City Council meeting. The Moreno Valley Arts Commission will judge the entries based on quality, creativity, originality and how well each photo represents Moreno Valley.

“This is an exciting way for our residents to get involved and showcase our unique and beautiful community,” said Media & Production Supervisor, Steve Jacobs. “Thirteen talented winners will get to see their photos used in various print publications and on the City’s Web site,” he said. The winning photos will also appear on the City’s official 2009 Calendar, which will be available for purchase on the City’s Web site via the Online City Store.
