Cobb County features more than 80 county parks featuring more than 6,000 acres of photo possibilities for the fall contest. The Fun in the Park contest is open to any photographer, with a limit of 10 entries per person. Deadline for entry is November 3, 2022. Winning photos from prior years can be viewed online.

There are three categories for 2022 entries:

  • General Category, defined as any photo/any subject that depicts ‘Fun in the Park’
  • Sports and Action, including any photo depicting sports and/or action in the park
  • Nature and Wildlife, focused on photos of nature or wildlife in the park

And if you're looking for great photo topics, don't forget that the North Georgia State Fair is held in Jim Miller Park in Marietta. From the bull riding competition to candid crowd shots and night time pictures of carnival rides, the State Fair is a treasure trove of photo possibilities for creative photographers. The fair runs from Sept. 22 - Oct. 2, Monday through Thursday, 4 - 11 p.m., Fridays 4 p.m. - midnight, Saturdays 10 a.m. - midnight, and Sundays 12:30 - 10 p.m.
The sports and action category is open to a wide range of activities in Cobb County Parks, like Cobblestone Golf Course.Photo: DeanLand / Our Travel Cafe

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.
