Westminster, MD, Tuesday, August 24, 2021 – Carroll County Department of Recreation & Parks is currently accepting applications for its inaugural class of volunteer Photo Ambassadors. A Recreation & Parks Photo Ambassador is someone who enjoys photography and is passionate about Carroll County parks, recreational programs, nature, and the environment.  Selected applicants will be asked to submit photos monthly to Recreation & Parks as well as share them with followers on their own social media platforms.   

The department’s goal is to help raise awareness of local recreational opportunities and encourage participation.  In return for their efforts, Photo Ambassadors will have access to programs at discounted rates and may receive other additional benefits.  This is also a great opportunity for amateur photographers to build a portfolio of work possibly leading to future opportunities.   

Selected photos taken by Photo Ambassadors will be featured on the department’s social media pages, in program guides and annual reports, for marketing opportunities, and on the Carroll County Recreation & Parks website. Photo Ambassadors will receive photography credit on photos used by the department when possible.  

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer Photo Ambassador for the department, visit ccrecpark.org for more information and to complete an application. Applications are due no later than December 1, 2021 and will be reviewed with selected Photo Ambassadors contacted in January 2022.
