Calling all shutterbugs

A picture lasts forever, or at least, a year.

Fancy yourself a sharp shooter? Put your photos to the test. They could wind up gracing the pages of the official Philadelphia Parks & Recreation 2012 Calendar.

City officials are again inviting anyone who has taken a digital image of a Philadelphia park or recreation scene to submit them for consideration. Landscapes, animals, historic sites, rec centers, parks, athetic fields -- all will be considered as long as they're 300 dpi.

For more information and to submit photos, click here. (Deadline: Oct. 30.)

Photos will be displayed here for viewing and voting. (Search: phillyparks-rec).

The top 13 vote-getters (12 months, 1 cover winner) will be appear in the limited-edition calendar sold at the LOVE Park Gift Shop and Fairmount Park Welcome Center.
