The City of St. Albert also reserves the right to use ANY submission in public communications (print or online) with credit to the photographer, along with a link to your approved photography page (if applicable).

Submission Guidelines 

What type of photos are we looking for?

To be featured in St. Albert LIVE, photos should be of St. Albert and surrounding area. We will feature natural landscapes, cityscapes, close-up nature shots, architecture, animals and photos that capture the feeling of the Botanic Arts City.

Need help choosing photos?

Here are some helpful guidelines to give you a better idea of what we're looking for!

  • Sharp and in focus. The objects should be clear and centered.
  • No people in the frame.
  • Minimal industrial elements in nature photos (e.g. no power lines, buildings or cars, unless it adds to the concept/composition somehow).
  • We only accept original photos. We do not accept screenshots, in-game captures and composite art.
  • Photos may be used for other purposes in City of. St. Albert publications.
