Enter New Jersey’s Favorite Beaches Photo Contest

By JULIET KASZAS-HOCH | May 08, 2019

Highlands — New Jersey boasts some of the most picturesque coastlines in the country. This spring, New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium is asking residents to submit their best beach photos for the nonprofit’s revamped “Favorite Beaches” contest. Ultimately, the top 12 photos will be used to create the consortium’s annual desktop calendar.

The contest theme is “The Natural Elements of New Jersey Beaches,” and the consortium welcomes both traditional and innovative approaches to this subject,

One original photo submission is permitted per person, and should be sent as an attachment via email to dbellini@njseagrant.org by 9 p.m. on May 23.

Post-processing and digital manipulation is not allowed, but minor adjustments to contrast, subtle burning and dodging are acceptable since some images need minor adjustments due to the scanning process or camera settings.

New Jersey Sea Grant’s graphic design team will select 24 photos from all entries received by the May 23 deadline. Those finalists will then be posted on the NJSGC website where visitors can vote for their favorite until June 24.

The 12 photos that received the most votes will be announced right before the July 4 holiday. These images will be used to create the 2020 NJSGC downloadable desktop calendar, which will also feature useful coastal facts and information.
