Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...


Your photograph could become the cover of The Tidewater News’ calendar for 2021.

One grand prize winner will also get $250.

Please email your photos to photocontest@TheTidewaterNews.com. Send as many as you like … and make sure you include your name and daytime phone number so we can contact you if chosen as a finalist.

The contest deadline is Friday, Oct. 23, at 5 p.m.

Photos from phones or tablets may not be able to be used.

Vertical or portrait photos will not be used. Horizontal only!

Only original photographs taken by yourself, in color, and unedited will be accepted.

Finalists will be chosen and judged for theme, composition and clarity by members of The Tidewater News staff. If selected as a finalist, we will attempt to email and call for names and locations of subjects featured in the photo as well as, if needed, the original high-resolution photos. If such information cannot be obtained within a week of the contest deadline, we will move on to the next finalist until the final winners are chosen.

All photos submitted become property of The Tidewater News, subject to be used in future publications and modified for print.

If you have questions or concerns about the contest or any process related to it please contact Stephen Cowles at 757-562-3187, ext. 314, or Stephen.Cowles@TheTidewaterNews.com.
