Got photos? We’d love to publish them

3 mins read

It’s a concept that other local newspapers have instituted and it’s one that we love.

We’re asking our readers to send in their photos for a new feature called “Lowcountry Life.” Photos can be anything from the gorgeous vistas and wildlife of the Lowcountry to family fun or anything else that strikes your fancy.

We have two pictures this week, the one at right and another one on Page 2, where this new feature will appear regularly.

To submit a Lowcountry Life photo, you must be the photographer or have permission to submit the photo to be published in The Island News.

Please submit high resolution photos and include a description and/or names of the people in the picture and the name of the photographer.

We’ll also be introducing some other new features over the next several weeks and we’d love your feedback.

One way to give us that feedback is through “Lowcounty Boil,” a new feature that will be published in the coming weeks. It’s a chance for you to express your opinion about, well, about anything from politics to local issues and more. The column of comments will not include commenter names, but we do reserve the right to choose which ones to publish.

Call Lowcountry Boil at 843-970-BOIL (2645) or email us at theislandnews@gmail.com.
