WARWICK, RI  —Plans for the 2019 City calendar are underway and the City of Warwick has invited residents to submit photos for consideration to be added to it.

 “The photos that are featured every year really help to showcase our City in a positive light,” Mayor Joseph Solomon said. “They are a great reminder to our residents of all that Warwick has to offer.”

Photos should reflect Warwick’s history, beauty, character, or events that make the community so special. Anyone with photos of Warwick’s events, historic locations, nature scenes or its people is invited to submit them for consideration. Each month will feature a different photo, so only 12 photos will be selected.

 Digital photos should be an 8 x 10 version, 300 dpi. Those with hard copies of photos are asked to submit and 8 x 10 print, which will be scanned. Or, photos may be burned onto a CD in tiff, epf or jpeg format.
