The Florida Scenic Highways Program (FSHP) is holding their “2019 Calendar Photo Contest.” There are three separate deadlines for contest entries, which are May 15, August 15, and November 15, 2018. Participants must be 18 years or older. Submissions are judged based on focus, lighting, composition, and relevance to byways. Four winners will be announced two weeks after entries are received for each part of the contest. Winning photos will be in the 2019 FSHP printable PDF Calendar, and will be showcased on FSHP website and social media. Winning photographers receive 12 free passes to the Florida State Parks.
