To celebrate Laguna Beach, the City sponsors an annual Photo Contest. Enter your high-resolution photos taken in Laguna Beach for a chance to win $500. Surprise us! Any photo taken within the city limits is eligible, but we really want to see your pics of urban Laguna Beach: life downtown and away from the beach.
By entering you affirm that you are the person who took the submitted photograph and that the entry was taken within Laguna Beach City limits; you own all intellectual property rights to the photograph; you grant the City the right to reproduce your photographs for non-commercial educational, promotional, or publicity purposes without payment or further compensation. All reproductions will credit the photographer, who retains the copyright to the work.
First prize photos in each category will receive $500. Additional winners will receive $100 each. All winners will receive recognition at a City Council Meeting, be featured on the City’s social media channels, and will be posted in a gallery on the City’s website. The winners will be selected by a local professional photographer.
