Help illustrate the city of Mexico Beach through your own lens.
The 14th annual Mexico Beach photography contest began on April 1 and runs through July 30.
Submitted photos must be taken within the city limits and may be in black and white or in color. Photos may not be digitally enhanced and submitted as “8x10” or “8x12” unframed prints.
“It’s a fun event that anyone can participate in,” said Community Development Council executive director Kimberly Shoaf.
The event, sponsored by the Mexico Beach Community Development Council, welcomes photographers to enter three pictures per across categories that include the beaches, fishing and boating, sunrises and sunsets, flora and animal life, people and around Mexico Beach.
Last year, the CDC received more than 200 submissions and to keep the contest open to as many people as possible, there is no entry fee this year.
“Everyone is so photo-savvy these days with their smart phones,” said Shoaf. “We want everyone to share those photos with us and let us know how great your vacation was.”
Each submission must be accompanied by a separate application and must be received at the Mexico Beach Welcome Center by 3 p.m. CT on July 30, 2014.
