Many are up in arms over the social media schism that is the Facebook Timeline.

Whether you like it or hate it, Facebook is changing over to this new layout — including JohnstonPatch's page — starting Mar. 30.

Instead of throwing a tantrum and starting a Facebook page to petition this, we've decided to use one of timeline's features to highlight Johnston's artistic talent.

How, you ask? From now until March 29, we'll be accepting your submissions for a cover photo for us to use on JohnstonPatch's Facebook page.

Whether it's a photo of at sunset, a painting of the ducks floating on Oak Reservoir (where is), or even folks chowing down at at lunch time — or or at night — we're looking for pieces of art that are uniquely Johnston.

There's no age requirement to submit: You just have to be a JohnstonPatch user [] create a 100-percent original piece of work owned by you for us to use.

Legaleze follows:

By submitting media to Patch, you agree to grant Patch the royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive right and license to use the work on JohnstonPatch’s Facebook page.

You must have permission to show all individuals seen in the work. If minor children are included in the work, you must be their parent or guardian, or obtain written consent from their parent or guardian prior to submitting the work.  All entries must be at least 399 pixels wide and cannot contain any advertising (such as a prominent Coca-Cola logo).

We'll close acceptance for entries on Mar. 29. The winner will be determined by the editor – but comments left below may help us in our decision.
