Get Your (Art)Work Recognized!

March-2016The IACP is holding two exciting contests: a police-community engagement photo contest and a patch design contest to commemorate the association’s 125th anniversary.

Police Chief Magazine Photo Contest

Coretta Scott King once said, “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.”

The IACP recognizes the importance and value in building and maintaining relationships and partnerships in diverse communities, and ensuring equal respect and treatment of all who are involved.

With this philosophy in mind, we are launching the Police Chief Magazine Photography Contest, which is designed to showcase your agency’s work in the communities you serve.

Have you witnessed outstanding work in your neighborhood and you want to show that excellence, excitement, or effective communication? Snap some photos of real-life agency personnel in action and submit them to the contest.

The Grand Prize winner will be featured on the cover of the Police Chief’s August 2018 edition which is themed “Community-Police Engagement.”

Plus, if your photo submission is selected as a runner-up, you have a chance of seeing it in Police Chief, as well!

The official social media hashtag for the contest is #PCMagContest. Also, don’t forget to tag us on Twitter at @theIACP or #PoliceChiefMag.

Guidelines, the submission form, and more information can be found at Police Chief Online.
