Calling All Fremont Shutterbugs
The City of Fremont is in the process of revamping its website, www.Fremont.gov, which will launch next year. One of the primary goals is to make the site a very visual experience. ThatÕs where you come in.
WeÕre looking for high-quality photos that truly capture the spirit of Fremont, whether that means showcasing a local event, taking a landscape shot of Lake Elizabeth and Central Park, or featuring the faces that make up this wonderful city. ItÕs completely up to you.
You can submit your photos through the end of November to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep in mind that any given email must be less than 10MB. Local photographers may also share their work via a URL. Also, please be sure to include your contact information so we know how to get in touch with you.
If your photo is selected, please be prepared to sign a photo release form. We will, of course, be giving you photo credit on the new website as a token of our appreciation for your contribution.
Thanks for being part of the action! We canÕt wait to see what Fremont looks like from your eyes.
