Photo Gallery Guidelines
What We Are Looking For
Calgary-related or Alberta-themed photographs
Calgary is a wonderful city in which to live, and we are hoping to showcase our city’s undiscovered beauty in the hosted galleries. We also realize that a lot of Calgarians like to travel since we’re in such a central location. You’re welcome to submit any photos of the Rockies, foothills, and prairies from the beautiful province of Alberta. Except no photos of Edmonton—just kidding! We ❤ you, Edmonton.
Photos from outside Alberta will not be considered.
Calgarians are very mobile, and we realize a lot of them take lovely trips to beautiful places all over the world. However, we are a proud Calgary-centered local business, and we want to showcase that pride. There are so many gorgeous places around the world, and your pictures might be very lovely, but they’re not relevant to the Calgary experience.
