As part of our 60th Anniversary celebrations, OMHRA is running a photo contest which serves to celebrate our successes and our profession. By entering, you will be helping us to tell the story of municipal Human Resource professionals and the invaluable services we offer to the municipalities we serve.

You don’t have to be a professional photographer to participate!

Aside from the good feels you will get from supporting our profession and our organization, your participation makes you eligible to win a $60 Visa gift certificate and the accolades of your peers! What do you have to lose?

You can enter photos in one of the following categories, or all three!

• OMHRA through the Years

• Things that are 60

• Things that are purple

The more you enter, the greater your chances to win!

Send your photo(s) and release form to Please include “60th Anniversary Photo Contest” in the subject line. Contest closes June 30th!

All photos that meet the contest requirements will be posted on OMHRA’s Twitter and Instagram sites for public voting on July 4th, which will run until July 9th. The five photos with the most votes in each category within that time period will be judged by the OMHRA’s Communications Working Group and the winners will be announced via Instagram and Twitter on July 14, 2023. Be sure to read the contest rules and eligibility info below.

In short, participating in OMHRA’s photo contest is an excellent way for you to support this month’s theme of Celebrating Successes: Recognition. Get the Picture?
