Partnership for the Presidio & Photoville Seeking Amateur & Professional Photographers For Upcoming Display In San Francisco
If you have a favorite photo of a visit to a national park, then you can share it for others to see.
Actually it does not have to be from a national park. It can be from a park anywhere on the planet. The Partnership for the Presidio in San Francisco has collaborated with the non-profit Photoville for the My Park Moment photo contest. This is an opportunity for anyone to submit a photo of their favorite park experience from anywhere in the world.
Entries are open until May 28 (Friday of Memorial Day Weekend).
A selection committee of artists, educators, and non-profit leaders will choose 400 photos to display outdoors in a dynamic, large-format show in the Presidio of San Francisco, part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which is one of the most visited national parks in the country.
The free show starts in September as a lead-up to the opening of the Presidio Tunnel Tops. in spring 2022. The show will take place at locations surrounding the future Presidio Tunnel Tops area, where visitors can see the progress on the new trails, overlooks, and play areas while enjoying the show.
“The Partnership for the Presidio holds the value that parks belong to all of us,” said Michael Boland, Chief Park Development and Visitor Engagement Officer for the Presidio Trust. “Parks are a shared treasure that bring us together, no matter our background or point of view,” “My Park Moment creates a place for people to share their park story and to celebrate the many moments to come at Presidio Tunnel Tops.”
The contest has several categories: Community Snapshot (Adult), Community Snapshot (Youth), and the Visual Story Award (Adult), which will award four photographers with a $2,500 cash prize for their multi-photo series.
