Parks are one of the best places to take photos of nature, wildlife, family and friends. The Great Parks of Hamilton County provides the perfect backdrop, with 21 parks and nature preserves and over 16,500 acres of greenspace. What better way to capture all of its essence than with a photography contest!

Each month during the contest, photo entries will be accepted that were taken in Great Parks of Hamilton County during that month. Each month's winner will receive a Charlie Harper poster and will be featured as that month's photo in the 2015 Great Parks calendar.
