Submit your photographs for Covid Project



The GCA is collecting images for a new photography program titled "The Covid Project" which will document what life has been like during the pandemic and result in a free online eBook (and a print edition available for purchase.) Each club will be limited to submitting up to 5 images, of which at least 1 will be selected for the book.  Images may be accompanied by a statement of intent of 25 words or less. Clubs may also submit one or two member’s brief written recollections.

Masks - Protection by masks, shields, gloves etc.

Coping - Gardening, hobbies, home improvement projects

Social - Distancing but connecting while apart

Business - Food shopping, service repairs, deliveries, restaurants

Interested in representing the HPGC in this activity? They would like every club to submit, so we need your photos please. Email a few of yours to hancockparkgardenclub@gmail.com with COVID PROJECT in the subject line and we'll submit the five we feel best represent the HPGC.


The purpose of this project is to provide a forum for GCA members to share their personal experiences in an a-political manner.  No political content, or content that is deemed to have political overtones, will be included. Read more on the GCA site here.
