Oyster Bay Town Councilwoman Rebecca M. Alesia invites residents to get their cameras ready and to submit their favorite photos to the Town of Oyster Bay for use in future publications.

“The Town of Oyster Bay accepts photos from residents all year, and the spring season presents a great opportunity to take some beautiful pictures throughout our communities,” Councilwoman Alesia said. “We highlight resident submissions in a variety of ways, including in Town literature, the Town’s website or Facebook page, or in other Town publications.”

The Councilwoman went on to say that photos must be taken within the confines of the Town of Oyster Bay. Digital submissions are preferred, but professionally developed photos, not inkjet printouts, may also be submitted. E-mailed photos, preferably in a jpeg format, should be sent to the Town’s Public Information Office at photos@oysterbay-ny.gov. Printed photographs should be mailed to Oyster Bay Town Hall, Attention Public Information Office, Calendar Photo Submissions, 54 Audrey Avenue, Oyster Bay NY 11771.

Residents should make sure their name, address, phone number and photo description accompany the photograph. Do not write in ink on the back of the picture. The photographer is responsible for correct information for photos, as well as notifying subjects that their picture may appear in a Town of Oyster Bay calendar or other Town material. You may be asked to supply a waiver if your photo is selected.
