Loggerhead Marinelife Center is calling photographers of all ages and experiences to submit their best photo of the Juno Beach Pier for the Center’s Third Annual Juno Beach Pier Photo Contest. Submissions open Monday, July 3 and run until Friday, Aug. 11.
As a treasured Palm Beach County icon, the Juno Beach Pier has been the subject of avid anglers, pier-goers and photographers for years. Last year, contestants from across Palm Beach County participated, with over 65 photo submissions and over 30,000 views of the Facebook album. Notably, the contest also created engagement in the community.
Photos must reveal one’s “pier-spective” of the iconic Juno Beach Pier in some way. All submissions will be uploaded to Facebook for an independent panel of judges to review and identify the winners. 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 in the Grand Court at noon on Saturday, Aug. 19. The grand prize winner’s photo will be featured as the official Juno Beach Pier Facebook profile picture and will win a $200-value LMC gift basket, 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 photos are accepted) via email to Hannah Deadman, LMC public relations & communications coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Aug. 11 to be entered in the contest.
