Parma – There is a lot to see and do in Parma. You know it. We know it. So let's show it.

Share your best photos taken in 2019 or from now until Nov. 27. It does not matter if you shot the image on an expensive digital camera or took it with your cell phone. If it is a quality image, and you have the knack for taking nice photos, we want to see them.

Email entries to
The contest is running now until Wednesday, Nov. 27. Contestants must write in the email subject line the photo category and in the email message a brief description of each photo. One entry allowed per contestant per category. In other words, you can submit a total of four photos, or one for each of the four categories. Send one photo per email. Make sure your photo is a high-resolution image (300 dpi or higher.) (Most smart phones can now take high-res photos.)

Categories are as follows:
1. Photo of a Parma Business
2. Scenic or Landscape Image
3. Image of Best Meeting Place in Parma, #MeetmeinParma
4. Candid or Action Photo

Judges will choose a winner in each category. A “Best Overall” photo will also be selected from those four categories. Photos must have been taken in 2019. Contestants must be Parma residents.

Winners will receive prizes and recognition from Parma City Council. They will also have their winning photos displayed on social media, the City of Parma website and the walls of the Parma Area Chamber of Commerce.

Residents of all ages and photo skill levels are encouraged to participate. We can't wait to see your photos!
