Did you capture something amazing in Lima / Allen County? We want to share it on the Visit Greater Lima website, in our visitors guide, and on our social media pages!  While anyone can submit photos to Visit Greater Lima, there are a few considerations that you must keep in mind if you wish to have your entries accepted.

  • Photos can belong to anyone. They do not have to be taken by a professional.

  • The photos must be taken in and around Lima and Allen County, Ohio.

  • Photos in landscape orientation must be of size 1024x554 pixels or bigger, while photos in portrait orientation must be of size 680x1024 or bigger. Square photos must be 1024x1024 or bigger.

  • The photos can have a variety of subjects including people, places, events, etc. However, if any photo has a person as a recognizable focal point, the photographer must have approval prior to submitting it to Visit Greater Lima.

  • No borders, signatures, watermarks, logos, overlaid text or camera time stamps should be visible on the photos.


Follow these simple guidelines and submit as many photos as you wish to Visit Greater Lima. While Visit Greater Lima cannot guarantee that every photo submitted will be used, once your work is accepted, your image will be featured when appropriate and space availability permits.


While Visit Greater Lima will not pay for using your photos, we will make every attempt to add photo credit along with the photo. However, if that is not possible, Visit Greater Lima will make note of the photo credit within the publication, main page or post. You also get to retain all rights to your photo.


So what are you waiting for?  Submit your photos now and earn bragging rights amongst your friends!  Photos can be submitted to: with the subject line “Lima/Allen County Photo Submission”
