Submit Photos of Your BREC Experience: Photos to be used for BREC's Green Scapes magazine

The Recreation and Park Commission for the Parish of East Baton Rouge, BREC, requests photographs of patron's experience at any of BREC's parks, events or programs for its new magazine, Green Scapes.  Here are a few guidelines and some information to help in the submission process:

All photos must be digital and in high resolution (file size of 500 Kb or greater; no less than 1,000 pixels in width and 1,000 pixels in height).

Email images as individual attachments to the co-editor at  Do not exceed 10 MB in any given e-mail as the e-mail may bounce back.

Please include a caption and other important information (park location, event name, program title, etc.) in the photo file name.  Make sure to identify any people that appear in the photos. Patrons are responsible for obtaining permission to publish the photos.  Photos with unidentified individuals will not be used.

It is extremely important not to edit photos, as tweaking may potentially introduce an inaccurate representation of the subject or item shot. 

Do not crop, color-correct, clean or manipulate the images in any way.  Any necessary editing will be performed by BREC's Communication Department.

Please include both your mailing address and e-mail address when submitting photos.

Send photos to:

Another method for patrons to submit photos is through our Facebook fan page at  If a patron's photo is chosen for the magazine, we will request (via Facebook message) a high resolution photo. 

It is the BREC mission to provide parks and recreational opportunities for all citizens of East Baton Rouge Parish.
