With the start of the new year, it's a great time to freshen up the North Fork Patch Facebook page — and we're looking for your help.
From now until Tuesday, Jan. 22, we'll be accepting submissions for a cover photo for us to use on our Facebook page.
Whether it's a photo of a historic building, Main Street, the beach or people just going about their day, we want to see your take on the area we cover — from Aquebogue to Orient Point and Shelter Island. Be creative and try to capture the essence of the area.
There's no age requirement to submit: You just have to be a North Fork Patch user and be able to create a 100 percent original piece of work owned by you for us to use.
We'll close acceptance for entries on Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 3 pm. Then, it's up to you again. We will choose the front-runners and create a poll for the readers to make the final decision.
