#FMCoronaPark18 Photo Walk Tour


Overjoyed to announce today that we will be presenting a photo walk tour at the New York City's 4th largest park and the largest in the borough of Queens, Flushing Meadows Corona-Park, next month on Saturday June 30th 2018 at 12:00 noon.

#FMCoronaPark18 is a photo walking tour geared towards Queens residents of all ages with an appreciation of Queens and its neighborhoods. #FMCoronaPark18 looks to highlight the very underrated and underappreciated section of Flushing Meadows Park.

Throughout walk, we will offer prizes to participants who correctly answer local Queens trivia. Lastly, #FMCoronaPark18 also looks to showcase the park's natural beauty and it's diverse and varied history, through an accompanying Instagram photo contest.

Photo contest is open to all participants of walking tour as well as anyone who uploads photos taken within Flushing-Meadows Corona Park under category guidelines and also applies the hashtag #FMCoronaPark18 to photos on Instagram. All photos new or old will be accepted, but it is important that hashtags are applied to each photo on Instagram with the correct spelling of the hashtag. (Misspelled hashtags will not be counted.) While there are no restrictions on what kind of cameras can be used, we highly suggest that mobile devices and photos be uploaded day of event.

Here are the photo categories:

1. Best stand alone shot of landmark within park.

2. Best portrait against landmark backdrop.

3. Best action shot or candid of parkgoer.

4. Best shot of a hidden gem within Flushing Meadows Park.

Along with the winners of photos in these 4 categories above, we will also select an additional 40 photos hashtagged #FMCoronaPark18 to be featured at the Queens Museum for a two day pop-up exhibit.

Deadline to enter photo contest will be Saturday, July 7th. Winners to be announced on Monday on July 9th 2018.
