Why are we using getinvolved.rdn.ca? This application allows for thumbnails to be uploaded and easily viewed. It ensures all photos are appropriate before they are posted. And it includes a voting function that makes it possible to involve the community in selecting their favourites.
Why does it reference 'Ideas'? We adapted the Ideas tool to support the photo contest. When it asks you for your idea and a description, give your photo a name and a location.
Can I email my photos? Unfortunately large emails are a problem for our email system. If you are unable to upload your submission, please email us at email@example.com.
