Thank you to all our community members who contributed their photos to our #WildArvda Photo Contest! 

 We received 120+ submissions featuring wildlife, landscapes, plants, and more. The City team is now reviewing submissions to decide which photos will be featured in the Arvada Report, a video slideshow, and the City's social media channels. Thank you for sharing the beauty of our city with the community!


"Wild Arvada" Photo Contest: Submit your photos and share the beauty of your city with the community!

To celebrate the beautiful nature in our community, we're inviting you to send us your photos of "wild" Arvada. "Wild Arvada" can mean many different things: a shot of the animals or birds we share open spaces with, a walk on a favorite trail, or a perfect Colorado sunset. It can be as broad as a mountain vista or as specific as a hummingbird. You choose!

Photo Requirements

  • Send no more than 5 photos
  • Provide photo location
  • Do not send photos with watermarks, logos, dates, names, or captions on them
