SUWANEE - You've been snapping away, and now the City of Suwanee wants to see your best photos taken throughout the year at parks, events, home, school, special occasions, and anywhere a little photo magic has occurred. The City is accepting entries to its annual Snap! Suwanee photo competition through December 31.<br />
"This competition is a fun way for residents to share their vision and personal photographs that help demonstrate why national publications continually name Suwanee as one of the country's best places to live," says Public Information Officer Lynne DeWilde. "The old saying that a picture's worth a thousand words certainly remains truer than ever in our go-go, digital world."<br />
Photos submitted to the competition should represent the Suwanee community in some way and ideally will be taken within the City of Suwanee limits. Additional guidelines and applications are available at suwanee.com.<br />
Winning photographs will be exhibited, beginning in March, for an approximately one-year period at City Hall.<br />
This year for the first time, the City is inviting photographers to share their entries with the community via Instagram. Use the hashtag #snapsuwanee.<br />
