The City of Destin opened its first public photo contest on Monday, November 7, 2016. The contest will run through December 31, 2016, and encourages people to submit digital images that portray unique perspectives of city amenities such as its beach, parks, historical landmarks, public art, natural conservation areas, recreational activities, special events, wildlife, etc. All photographs must be submitted via the city’s website, cityofdestin.com/destinphotocontest, and must be taken within the corporate city limits of Destin.
“Every day, we see photos posted to social media outlets that showcase why Destin is such a great place to live, work and play,” said City Manager Carisse LeJeune. “This is a great opportunity for our residents and visitors to bring these photos together in one place so that they can be shared with everyone!”
The photographs will be judged by a panel of city staff and guest judges. Criteria for entries is outlined in the online entry form found at cityofdestin.com/destinphotocontest. Digital submissions only. Cash prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third place entries, and public recognition will be given via social media and the city’s website. All entries will be retained by the city for future display.
