IRVINE, CA (Jan. 19, 2016): The City of Irvine marks its 45th anniversary this year, and we invite residents and visitors to the City to help us celebrate by participating in the City of Irvine 45th Anniversary Photo Contest.
The contest aims to capture the essence of Irvine – our neighborhoods and community members, our business and innovation, our serene Open Space. The winners in each of five categories – Outdoors, Community, Historical, Innovation and 17 and Under – will be revealed in August in the City’s Inside Irvine magazine. A grand prize winner will receive a $250 gift card to the Irvine Spectrum Center.
Submissions are due July 1 by 5 p.m.
