How to Enter

Each photo must be accompanied by an entry form (digital or print), which can be obtained on this website, or at the magazine offices at the Vineyard Gazette, 34 South Summer Street, Edgartown. Photos may be submitted in two ways:

  • Digital images are preferred, and should be JPGs, of at least 300 dpi. E-mailed images will not be accepted. Please use the form below to upload your photograph.
  • 8” x 10” print images are acceptable (but not printed via personal-computer printers because of inferior printing quality; they should be printed either commercially or developed). Attach an entry form to the back of each photo (do not include a name on the front of the photo, since judging is anonymous). Mail to:
