Scenic Photos Sought For 2021 Calendar and Street Banners

Have you been spending more time exploring Port Coquitlam’s natural spaces with your camera during the pandemic? Submit your best photos to the city by Sept. 30 for a chance to see them in the community calendar and lining local streets next year.

Scenic, impactful photos showcasing Port Coquitlam landscapes, flowers and wildlife from all four seasons are being sought for the city’s 2021 calendar and street banner program. Images that show the photo was taken in Port Coquitlam are preferred to close-ups.     

Entitled Naturally PoCo, the 2021 calendar will include the waste collection schedule, city information and space for users to write in their personal schedules. 

Given the uncertainty created by the pandemic, the 2021 calendar will be available online for downloading and can be picked up when city facilities re-open. This will allow for easier information updates as details about city events and meetings are confirmed.

All submitted photos will be placed in the online gallery at and considered for use in the calendar, street banners and other city publications. 

Photo credits will be applied to all submitted photos used in the calendar, and whenever possible in other city publications.

To be considered for the calendar and banners, photos must meet the following criteria: 

  • • Format: jpeg or tiff 
  • • Orientation: horizontal for calendar and vertical for the banners
  • • Size: for calendars, at least 300 dpi at a size of 13” wide by 10” deep OR a file size of at least 2 MB. To be considered for banners, at least 300 dpi at a size of 28” wide by 48” deep OR a file size of at least 4 MB.
