Submit Your Photograph to the “This is Euclid” Contest
The City of Euclid will be sponsoring a contest through August 31, 2016 and participation is open to residents, employees, and visitors of Euclid.
Everyone is welcome to submit a memorable photograph of Euclid for a chance to have it showcased throughout storefronts on Lakeshore Boulevard in Downtown Euclid. The idea was borrowed from art students who proposed a plan for advertising available storefronts, while beautifying the area at the same time. A committee of residents, artists and other community stakeholders formed to propel the project to fruition.
The clings can be helpful in revitalizing multiple neighborhoods because once a vacant space becomes occupied, the clings will be relocated to other storefronts to help market those spaces.
This contest will feature photographs of all the great things about Euclid - including scenery, people, food, and much more. Vintage photos are welcome for submission, as long as the photo was taken inside city boundaries.
Photo enthusiasts are encouraged to take photographs of Euclid on their smartphones and digital cameras, and send them to email@example.com or tag your photographs with the hashtag #thisiseuclid on Instagram or Facebook so the photos can be viewed and voted on.
The committee’s favorite photographs will be enlarged into window clings, and placed in Downtown storefronts. By having people take fun, interesting pictures, the window clings are a creative way to market both vacant storefronts, and the city as a whole, in an effort to spread awareness about what Euclid has to offer.
On Friday, September 23rd, 2016 there will be an art walk in Downtown Euclid to celebrate the winning photographs. Everyone is encouraged to attend and support local businesses as we get together and show off the city! Additional information is available at http://www.cityofeuclid.com .
We look forward to seeing your photographs! If you would like to help plan the art walk or be involved in the committee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
