For previous 2012 winners please see this link

The Coral Gables Museum invites YOU to submit your photograph for a chance to exhibit at the Museum and win cash and prizes, including a grand prize of a Leica camera! This is a skill-based photography contest open to all ages. This contest will culminate in an exhibit at the Coral Gables Museum in summer 2013. The objectives of this contest are to invite the public to explore and examine the City of Coral Gables through a photographic lens, as well as to recognize local talent. Awards will be determined by a professional jury and a public vote.
