Local residents are being invited to “Show us your Kingston” by submitting photos from around the city.

In a release, the City of Kingston said that resident-submitted photos contests have appeared in communications that include the Annual Report, ads, posters and on its website, Twitter and Facebook feeds.

“East-end, west-end, north-end, midtown and rural Kingston – we are hoping to see all kinds of neighbourhoods and all kinds of Kingstonians,” said Debbi Miller, manager, communications and public engagement. “Show us your personality when you show us your Kingston.”

Some of suggested inspirations to find photo opportunities include your walk to work or school, play spaces, neighbourhood, a cherished view, and scenes of your family and friends enjoying the city.
