CNN iReport is sponsoring the “City Smack Down” between Tampa, host city of the Republican National Convention, and Charlotte, N.C., host city of the Democratic National Convention.

Individuals are encouraged to pick their “fave” city, Tampa or Charlotte, and send comments, photos and videos stating the reasons:

Submissions will only be taken through May 21. The website states that the best stories, photos and travel tips could be featured in a CNN story.
