LANSING, Ill. (February 8, 2022) – As a way to showcase weather across the community and highlight local photographers of all skill levels, The Lansing Journal is inviting readers to submit weather-related photos for possible publication.
The daily weather report has included a local photo almost since its inception, but the photography has been limited to Journal staff. Managing Editor Josh Bootsma believes that inviting the public to submit photos will increase the variety of locations, perspectives, and subjects shared with readers.
Submitted photos should be current and somehow weather-related. Readers who submit weather photos should include the following information:
- Description or location of the photo (For example, “Snow drifts on my porch on Walter Street” or “Sunset at Erfert Park” or “My Schnauzer, Mimi, in her boots, ready for a winter walk.”)
- Names of any people or animals in the photo
- Name of the person who took the photo
Weather photo submissions can be emailed to [email protected].
