It was started as a hashtag by the Liberty Lake Gazette’s web development team to be used when sharing beautiful images from a community. It translates to “Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” or “Beautiful Day in this Neighborhood”. (reference: https://www.hashtags.org/definition/BDITN/)
The phrase was originally made famous by Fred Rogers song, ‘It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood’ in the Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood TV show. (reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mister_Rogers%27_Neighborhood)
Liberty Lake Gazette uses the tag #BDITN in their Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood photo series.
Liberty Lake Gazette welcomes photos from the community. There are the few things to note:
- You must own rights to the photo.
- Photos must have been taken by you or the photographer must have given you permission to use. Simply giving the photographer photo credit does not equal permission.
- Public domain or stock photos from the internet are not accepted.
- If you submit a photo to the the Gazette, you are giving them license to use that photo as they wish.
- Photos will all be cropped to a 16:9 ratio.
- Preferred dimensions are 1200 x 675 at 72 dpi.
- May be sent in PNG, EPS, PSD, PDF, JPG, JPEG and more. Preferred file extension is JPG saved at 80%

- If a photo is not in the preferred format, ratio, or dimensions; it may be cropped or resized by the art department.
- Liberty Lake Gazette is happy to provide photo credit and watermarks are acceptable.
