While you're at the 38th annual Ocean Beach Street Fair and Chili Cook-Off Festival June 24th, stop off at the Peninsula Beacon's booth, in the 4900 block of Newport Avenue, to participate in San Diego Community Newspaper Group's annual amateur photo contest.
All you have to do is check out posted submissions for the newspaper's ever-popular 25th annual Amateur Photo Contest. Then fill out a slip denoting your favorite entries and put them in the box provided.
“Be sure to send in your best photo of the Peninsula area taken over the past year,” said Mike Fahey, Beacon marketing consultanat. “There are some great prizes for the top three places, including some $100 gift certificates to popular local restaurants. The best part is your photo will be published in the Beacon for all to see.”
Fahey's always amazed at just how many people drop by the Beacon booth to say hello, check out the photos and select their favorite entries.
“We usually get more than 400 ballots,” Fahey added.
Photos must be taken in the Ocean Beach, Shelter Island, Point Loma, La Portal and Sports Arena/ Midway area by local residents.
It’s also your chance to share thoughts and comments with the Beacon staff.
The deadline for entries in the photo contest is Tuesday, June 22 at 2pm. Photos submitted must have been taken between June 15, 2016 and June 15, 2017.
Entries may be dropped off at The Beacon Offices, 1621 Grand Ave. on the 2nd floor, or mailed to: The Beacon, Attn: Photo Contest, 1621 Grand Ave., Suite C, San Diego, CA., 92109.
