2011 Port Moody City Calendar Needs You!


The headline on the city website is Hit us with your best shot! So if I start singing Pat Benatar hits from the 80s in the middle of this post, you’ll know why.

The City of Port Moody puts out a calendar every year, and they’re looking for submissions from all of us aspiring shutterbugs. This year the theme is “My Port Moody!” Now as a theme, I would say that’s fairly wide open. The winning shots will appear in the calendar sent to every Port Moody resident and business. You’ll receive a photo credit in the calendar, your photo will appear on signature pages on the city website, and the best part, a whole month of bragging rights.

Submission Requirements:

  • Images must be JPEG files.
  • Images must be at least 300 DPI resolution when you submit them. The committee will not consider low resolution copies.
  • Calendar images will be 11” by 8.5”, so bigger is better!
  • Images must be “landscape” style to fit the calendar’s format.
  • We require a model release/waiver from any persons who appear in your photos.
  • Maximum ten photos per entrant on a CD. Due to the requirement for large size images, we cannot accept photos by email.
  • Manipulated or retouched images are not eligible.
  • Entries must include your name, telephone number and an email address.
  • For each photo, please include a short description about where and when the photo was taken, and any interesting circumstances. Please note that the committee reserves the right to title photos to reflect the theme of the calendar.

To get you inspired, check out some of the awesome pictures our fantastic readers submit to theV3H Flickr Group. Please share your entries with us in our Flickr group, and we can all have fun second-guessing the photo selection committee!
