Call for Photo Contest Theme for 2020 Calendar

PAWTUCKET – With the successful release of the 2019 City Calendar, now is the time to leave your creative mark for the 2020 Pawtucket City Calendar. Mayor Donald R. Grebien, Photo Contest Organizer Patricia S. Zacks, and the City of Pawtucket call for suggestions on next year’s theme.

According to Zacks, every year a theme is selected and hundreds of photo buffs and Pawtucket students submit entries hoping that their photo is selected to be placed in the calendar. “We want to reach out to the community and get them involved,” says Zacks. “This being an obvious way to do so and have a major impact on the photo exhibit. The person who submits the winning theme will be recognized in the calendar.” 

Mayor Donald R. Grebien applauds the opening up of the photo contest. “The photo contest is a great way for students, residents and visitors to highlight the beauty of our city from all different perspectives.”

Professional photographers will review the submitted entries looking for creativity and topic that has not been used in previous years. Past themes include:

  • Pawtucket: A Closer Look (2018)
  • The Flavor of Pawtucket (2017)
  • Pawtucket's Color Palette (2016)
  • Pawtucket: A Different Perspective (2015)
  • A Piece of Pawtucket (2014)
  • All in a Day’s Work (2013)
  • The Four Seasons of Pawtucket (2012)
  • Reflections of Pawtucket (2011)
  • Faces of Pawtucket (2010)

  • Pawtucket Mills: Our Past and Our Future (2003)
  • Pawtucket: A City in Focus (2000, 2001, 2002)

Photos submitted to this celebrated annual photo contest will be exhibit throughout the Pawtucket Arts Festival in September. Like previous years, all winning photos will be used in next year’s City Calendar.
