Categories in the 2022 competition include Sports and Action, Nature and Wildlife, and General -- which includes any subject that depicts having fun in one of the many county and city parks in Cobb County. Not sure what to enter? Check out a gallery of prior winners, or consider these guidelines:

  1. Composed a perfect picture of butterflies, birds or beautiful flowers? Enter it into Nature and Wildlife.
  2. Snapped a sneaky photo of a frozen pickleballer, see-sawing sweetheart or high-flying skateboarder? That's sports and action.
  3. And general -- well, that's everything else you could see and photograph while having (legal!) fun in a public park.

The contest is open to all photographers, entry is free, and the deadline for entering is Nov. 3, 2022. Individuals can submit up to 10 entries.

Photos will be judged by the Cobb Photographic Society, one of the the area's most established camera clubs, and Cobb County PARKS. First, second, third place and honorable mentions will be awarded in each category, and winners will receive plaques recognizing their achievements.

Complete rules are available on the Cobb County PARKS website, where a digital entry form also can be downloaded.

Photographers agree by entering the contest to give permission to Cobb County to use their images in publications and on websites. Pictures may be displayed in exhibits and exhibited online.

I left the business world behind, living in Northwest Georgia and writing about avocations including outdoor excursions, family-friendly travel, road trips, exploration ideas for active seniors and some of my community passions. I've traveled to 47 states and nearly as many countries, and I'm still counting up. I'm a traveler, hiker, cyclist, blogger, marketing consultant, community volunteer and local high school band nerd who previously has lived in Florida, Ohio, Indiana and Mississippi. I'm a South Louisiana-born French Cajun whose great-grandparents were sugar farmers, bar owners and reputed bootleggers. My upbringing in food-rich Louisiana and my restaurant industry career affirmed my status as an over-qualified eater. That also inspired the name of my blog, OurTravelCafe.com. There, I offer up a complete menu of our my own experiences, explorations and adventures, organized by geography and always sprinkled with some spicy, tasty tidbits and food notes.
