Florida maritime freight facility Port Canaveral said Friday that it is calling on amateur photographers in the region to submit their best pictures for a photo contest in honor of the port's 65th anniversary.
Interested participants have until September 30 to submit up to three original digital photographs taken in or around Port Canaveral that illustrate an aspect of the port, such as scenery, cruise or cargo ships, pleasure boats, nature, port operations, wildlife, and space launches as seen from the port.
A volunteer panel of five judges will review all photos and select the top three in each of five categories—cruise, cargo, fishing/boating/recreation, environmental, and space. Photographs will be judged on impact, creativity, composition, and storytelling.
The port will announce the winners on Nov. 3, display the top photos at an exhibition on Nov. 4, and show off the winning snapshots at various locations around the port during the coming year. Check online for contest rules and entry forms.
