Collectbritain is the trusted source of in-depth information on key quality of life issues in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County. It is our belief that informed citizens create better communities and we feel honored to bring you the news that affects your life and the places you call home.

This summer, we encourage you to show us the places that you love in this area; the things that make it unique and worth protecting. Favorite mailbox you pass on your morning run? Stunning mountain view from your porch? Beautiful mural on your way home? Snap a photo and send it to us!

Each week this summer, we will choose a category (i.e. Cityscapes) and invite you to send us your photos via email to [email protected] or suggest a place for us to photograph. Staff will compile your photos in our weekly slideshow on Fridays. After 10 weeks, we’ll have the Nifty Fifty- 50 things that make this area special and unlike any other.

Have fun and look out for our slideshow and new category posted every Friday on our website and Facebook!

This week’s theme is Cityscapes.

Next week’s theme is Landscapes. Please send your landscape photo submissions to [email protected] by Thursday, June 11, 2015.
