Tysons, VA

We’re looking for your photos of what it’s like to live, work or play in Tysons, Vienna, McLean, Falls Church or Merrifield during the coronavirus.

What does it look like to social distance in an urbanizing area? How crowded is the W&OD Trail? Where are people going to get outside but stay away from crowds?

Whether you snap pictures on a professional camera or your smartphone, we are always interested in sharing your photos (with credit to you!) in our Morning Notes on weekdays or on social media.

The best way to send photos is to email us at [email protected] or tag/direct message us on our social media accounts (InstagramTwitter and Facebook).

 Thank you to the photographers who have already sent us photos!

Have thoughts about Tysons Reporter’s coverage of Tysons, McLean, Vienna, Falls Church and Merrifield? Want to share your opinions about local issues?

Tysons Reporter welcomes letters to the editors and op-eds of specific interest to the communities in our coverage area.

The key difference is that an op-ed can be an opinion piece about a local issue, while a letter to the editor responds directly to a Tysons Reporter story.

Please email it to [email protected] You are also welcome to contact us with your idea for feedback before submitting it.

While there is no word limit, we suggest under 1,000 words. Contributions may be edited for length, content and style/grammar.

Tysons Reporter does not publish op-eds relating to a specific candidate running for political office — either from the candidate’s team or opponents.

After being inspired by a project from a Seattle-based production company called Wondercamp, Tysons Reporter wants to create a video project highlighting hope and humanity during the COVID-19 pandemic — and we need your help.

Tysons Reporter is looking for video submissions of verbal “love letters” to neighbors around the Tysons area.

The point of this project is to learn how locals are keeping their spirits up and what people appreciate about life and community, even in hard times.

Submissions should be narrated like someone is reading a letter to someone they are about. An example can be found here.

Participants in Tysons, McLean, Falls Church, Merrifield and Vienna should send in videos of themselves and family members answering prompts (which can be found below) and also clips showing off a fun skill or hobby that has been keeping them occupied while staying inside, like gardening, baking, family fun, sing-alongs or playing with pets.

First responders, healthcare workers and other essential workers are also encouraged to send in videos talking about what gives them hope for a brighter future.

Answers to prompts should flow together and be applicable to a larger audience.

Please send all video submissions to our staff reporter Ashley Hopko at [email protected] before next Monday (May 4).

Prompts include:

  • How has your community given you hope during this challenging time?
  • Have you seen any acts of kindness lately?
  • How has the pandemic helped you to reevaluate your priorities?
  • What do you wish for your community and friends during this time?
  • How have you helped your community in this time of crisis?

Videography Tips

  • Smartphones are okay
  • Speak clearly and at a steady pace
  • Make sure your environment is well-lit with natural light (outside or near a window)
  • Ensure you are in a quiet space
  • Try to use a makeshift tripod to ensure shake-free shots
  • Do a sound check before sending in your video. If you can’t hear yourself clearly, we can’t hear you either
  • Avoid profanity or adult themes. This is an inclusive project for all ages
