Photo Contest

It's back for the 11th year! Enter your photos in the "Zoom In on Newport News" photo contest for a chance to win cash prizes! Whether you are a Newport News resident or a treasured visitor to our great city, Newport News Tourism is inviting you to "ZOOM In" on Newport News and submit your images to our 2019 Photo Contest beginning June 1 through October 31, 2019.

THEME & eligibility

This year’s theme is “People and Pets.” Photos must show one or more people, one or more pets, or a combination of both people and pets enjoying Newport News. The person or people featured in the photos can be silhouettes, but if the photograph includes a recognizable face, then the model release section of the entry form must be completed. 

There is a new youth category this year, opening the competition to children, ages 12 to 17. The winner in the youth category will receive a $250 grand prize. Additionally, we’ll be eliminating the “professional” and “non-professional” categories to simply award one grand prize of $500 to an adult winner. 

Please keep in mind that the submitted images will be featured in Newport News Tourism publications and on the city’s tourism website, therefore the photographs must be taken in places that are easily recognizable as “Newport News,” not in privately owned homes, yards, or businesses. A panel of judges will choose the winners. Participants may submit up to five photographs, digital or film. Photographs taken prior to June 1, 2019, which is the start of the contest, are eligible to be entered; however, the images must show people, pets, or both people and pets. All other images, including selfies, will be eliminated from the competition. For detailed requirements, see our Rules and Guidelines or FAQs page.
