Suggest a theme for city calendar

PAWTUCKET – Leave your creative mark on the 2019 Pawtucket City Calendar. Photo contest organizer Patricia S. Zacks and the city of Pawtucket are calling for suggestions on next year’s theme. The deadline for suggestions is Friday, Feb. 16.

According to Zacks, every year a theme is selected and hundreds of photo enthusiasts and Pawtucket students submit entries, hoping 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.”

Professional photographers will review the submitted entries looking for creativity and topics that have not been used in previous years. Past themes include: 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), Doorways & Gateways in Pawtucket (2009), Paws (or Pause) in Pawtucket (2008), Historic Places in Pawtucket (2007), Pawtucket People, Places or Things (2006), Discovering Pawtucket (2005), Taking Pride in Our Neighborhoods (2004), Pawtucket Mills: Our Past and Our Future (2003), Pawtucket: A City in Focus (2000, 2001, 2002).
