Cruising around Red Deer? Snap a photo and you could win a prize.

Red Deerians are being encouraged to take photos of their favourite neighbourhood elements for the City’s Picture It! photo contest.

Participants can submit photos by email to pictureit@reddeer.ca or through Twitter by using the #pictureitrd tag. Those who do will be entered in a draw for the chance to win one of three $100 Recreation, Park and Culture gift cards.

An early bird draw will be held on July 4 for two $50 RPC cards. The grand prizes will be drawn August 1. Each submission will be shared on the city’s Facebook page. There is no limit to the number of submissions per contestant.

‘The photos don’t even have to be limited to Red Deer, said City manager of planning Tara Lodewyk.

“Whether the photos are from their own Red Deer neighbourhood or from across the globe, we want to know what neighbourhood elements, such as housing types, streets and public spaces, are important to Red Deerians.” The City is currently revising neighbourhood design standards, which were created almost 10 years ago, said Lodewyk.

The contest began Monday and runs until July 31.
