PRIDE seeking snaps

June 24, 2004

Basehor PRIDE is asking city residents to remember to bring one item in particular on their summer vacations: a camera.

PRIDE officials are sponsoring a photo contest this year in the hopes that some summer travelers will bring some of the highlights from other cities back to Basehor to be considered for implementation within the city.

"Some of the things people see on their vacations might give us ideas for what Basehor can do with a city park or a downtown for example," PRIDE chairman George Smith said.

PRIDE will be looking for a few fun and practical ideas from "kid-friendly" cities that can be brought home and brought to life in Basehor. Acceptable photos can be anything from a whole city block, a park, a streetscape or even a lamppost.

PRIDE will accept color or black and white photos to be considered for prizes in five categories and there will be separate tiers for adults and children. Judges will accept entries for the best usable idea, best focal point, best streetscape, best series of five photos, best park idea and miscellaneous categories.

Photographers need only to submit their snapshots to Basehor PRIDE, P.O. Box 413, Basehor, Kan., 66007. All entries will become the property of PRIDE, which may use and display the photos how it sees fit. Anyone with questions is asked to contact Smith at 724-2998.
