As you might know, I'm working with the City of Sebastopol on community outreach. We've just launched an online digital photography contest, www.LifeInSebastopol.com. This is a joint project with the Sebastopol Chamber of Commerce, the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, and the Sonoma West Times & News.
We're using the contest to help raise awareness of the work that City Departments and local nonprofits do to help make Sebastopol such a wonderful place to live in and work in. And we're also looking for some great photos. It's open to people of all ages who live or work in Sebastopol.
If you like to take photos, you might want to enter the contest. There are over $1,000 in prizes and the winning photos will be assembled into a moving exhibit that will be mounted in prominent places in town. They will also be featured on the City's Facebook page, website and other materials.
Whether or not you enter, I hope that you will let everyone you know about the contest. You can also like the City of Sebastopol's Facebook page and share today's post about the launch of the contest. Here's a link: https://www.facebook.com/CityofSebastopolCA
Although you can't actually enter the contest on Instagram, we're experimenting with promoting it there and featuring some entries. You can follow us the contest on Instagram at @lifeinsebastopol, and use the hashtag #lifeinseb.
Feel free to forward this email. If you need something official looking, I can send it to you, too.
Thanks so much,
