Bethany Beach Photo Contest open for entries

January 13, 2022

The Town of Bethany Beach is accepting submissions for its annual photo contest. Photos will be selected for the 2022/-23 town calendar and widespread marketing efforts.

Images should be taken in Bethany Beach and illustrate what sets Bethany apart from other beach towns. Ideally, pictures should include landmarks that are unique to Bethany, and show why visitors and residents are drawn to the resort town.

The contest is open to both amateurs and professionals. Multiple entries are acceptable but should be limited to three. The town will narrow down the entries into finalists, then survey the public for selection of the grand prize winner. The owner of the photo with the most unique votes will receive a 2022 VIP parking pass good for free parking at any space within town limits during the summer season. All finalists will receive consideration for placement in the calendar, along with a free copy of the calendar.

Entries are due no later than Friday, Jan. 28. Only digital photos are accepted, and if selected, they must be high resolution, 300 dpi or greater. Email photos as jpeg attachments to Do not put them in the body of the email. For complete rules, visit
