The Meadville Tribune started accepting reader photos for a special web-site feature call ‘Reader’s Pictures of the Month.’ We put these submitted photos in a slideshow to showcase the talented photographers of the area as well as the casual snap shot photographer who took an image or two they wanted to share. These slideshows are getting our Web-site readers from all over the country taking a look to see what is happening, many are people who simply live elsewhere and want to see some of their old stomping grounds and possibly friends still enjoying life in Crawford County.

One such web reader, Chris Bloom of Phoenix, AZ posted a comment declaring this “This is my favorite part of the online paper.”

In its first few months our reader slideshows seem to be a hit, with many people submitting and sharing important moments of their lives – moments that help define who we are as a people and a community.

And we’re continuing to accept entries. Currently we’re looking for pictures taken in January 2009, perhaps a new years party, or hard hat wrestlers, maybe some sledders, what ever you capture would be great to share. We’d love to see more pictures of people doing things, but continue to send in the scenics and animals as well.

Our criteria is simple, pictures taken in and around Crawford County or of Crawford Countians on vacation or even living elsewhere. Photographs of our troops would be wonderful to share with our readers, especially over the holidays.

To submit, please send jpeg images to

Be sure to include information such as who the photographer is, when the picture was taken, who is in the picture and any information about the scene that will put it into context. Example: John Smith age 7, of Conneaut Lake holds up a fish he caught on November 3rd while fishing behind his home. Photo taken by Joan Smith, proud mother of John. John loves fishing with his grandpa Joe every Saturday.

If you love photography or just love a picture you have snapped, we’d love to see it and share it with our readers. Click!
