Do the winning photographs take home a cash prize of some sort in the Marco Island Photo Contest? No. But photographers achieve local celebrity status of a sort when their name accompanies their photo on the new website (where possible). The City wants photographs of local landmarks, celebrations, people, and vistas. If you do take photos of people, please make sure you get their written permission to allow the release of their likeness in case the photo is used on the website. Otherwise, it might not even be considered for inclusion on the website. Also, please leave out any alcohol, tobacco, profanity or nudity. Make sure your photographs remain family-friendly and showcase Marco Island’s unique lifestyle.

Marco Island Photo Contest Rules

Contestants in the Marco Island Photo Contest may enter up to five photographs total. Digital photos only, please. Hard copies will not be accepted. Both color and black and white photos are allowed. Only submit your own work. Any photograph taken by you during the last three years (2016, 2017 or 2018) can be submitted. Made it to a Marco Island 2nd Tuesday or two over the past few years? Did you take foodie photos during the Marco Island-Naples SWFL Restaurant Week earlier this year? Been out on your boat or at the beach lately? Have you taken photos of shops around town decorated in their holiday finest in the past couple of years? Submit them into the Marco Island Photo Contest. Organizers want to see photos from any season throughout the year, not just right now.

How to Enter the Marco Island Photo Contest

All you need to do to enter the Marco Island Photo Contest is to visit the City’s website and fill out the online submission form. If you want to submit your photos in person, bring the digital photos via USB stick or CD to the City Hall’s front desk. They’ll also need you to fill out a paper form to accompany the photos. All photos submitted automatically become the City’s property. They will not return any photographs to the original owner. So, if these are photographs you want to keep at home, make copies or print them out before you submit the original. All entries need to be received by 5 pm on October 15th, 2018.

Get out there. Go find your favorite locales, landscapes, and events. Take lots of photos. Then, select the best four or five and enter them into the Marco Island Photo Contest. Good luck!
