City seeks picture donations for new Web site

MILTON, GA., April 27, 2010 - This is a call to all shutterbugs in Milton. The city is revamping its Web site and would like to include the best photography of its residents.

You don't need to be a professional photographer or have the best equipment - all submissions are welcome. The Communications Department is simply looking for great shots you might have taken at a Milton event like the Roundup, Christmas at Crabapple or Memorial Day.

However, the photo doesn't have to be site- or date-specific. If you specialize in nature photography or have a picture that reflects and features what makes Milton great, please share it with us. The only requirement is that the picture was taken in Milton.

Please note shots taken outside of Milton by residents will not be accepted.

Everyone who submits a photo will receive special recognition on the Web site if the image is used. Those shots not used specifically on the Web site will be added to a social media-based online gallery of images to be launched with the revamped site.

Donated images may also be used in future City of Milton publications, brochures and related materials. All uses will include recognition for the photographer.

To submit a photo electronically, please e-mail Communications Manager Jason Wright at If you have large digital images or would like to donate a number of printed pictures for use, please call Wright at 678-242-2523 to arrange a way to donate the images to the city.

Upon donation, you will be asked to fill out a photo release form so the city may use the image or images.
