Juno Beach Pier Photo Contest 2015 winner // Michael Brown

Standing firm through rain, shine, wind and waves is the Juno Beach Pier. As a northern Palm Beach County icon, the pier has been the subject of avid anglers, pier-goers and photographers for years. In celebration of the pier and all that it offers to South Florida residents, Loggerhead Marinelife Center is excited to announce the return of the Annual Juno Beach Pier Photo Contest.

Last year, LMC launched the inaugural photo contest, which brought contestants of all ages from across the county. Additionally, there were more than 90 photos submitted and over 32,000 people who viewed the Facebook album of the submissions. Notably, the contest also created engagement within the local community.

The Second Annual Juno Beach Pier Photo Contest is open to all ages and opens Aug. 6. Photos must showcase the iconic Juno Beach Pier, one of the most treasured coastal destinations in Palm Beach County, in some way. All submissions will be uploaded to Facebook for an independent panel of judges to review and identify the winners. Additionally, the most “liked” photo will be named the Facebook fan favorite.

LMC will showcase and announce the grand prize winner and additional winners at Marinelife Day at The Gardens Mall at noon on Aug. 20. The grand prize winner of the photo contest will also have their photo featured as the Juno Beach Pier’s profile picture and win an LMC gift basket valued at $200 (including a personalized sea turtle adoption). Select photos will also appear on the official Juno Beach Pier Instagram.

Contestants may submit one high-resolution photo (iPhone pictures are accepted) via email to Hannah Deadman, LMC Public Relations & Communications Coordinator, at hdeadman@marinelife.org by Aug. 14 to be considered in the contest.
