We would love to include your photos that capture the spirit of beachcombing and the wonders found on your beach in a beautiful image. As-found photos of great finds, beachscapes in all types of weather, and collections of treasured finds all are great photos for a calendar.

Photo specs

Calendar photos should be original. unretouched, high-resolution, horizontal photos of as-found pieces, your beach finds, your collection, your beach, or whatever you think fellow beachcombers might like to look at for a month.

Please don't share your photo entries online before April 15th, so when your photo is announced as a finalist on April 15th it will be the first time viewers have seen it. If your photo is selected as a finalist we hope that you will encourage everyone to vote for your image for the cover starting on April 15th!

Because photos are printed at high resolution at 11x8.5 inches, the ideal size is 3,000 x 2,000 pixels or larger. Phone camera photos are great as long as your phone is set at the highest settings.

If your photo is on the cover, you get $250 plus 10 free calendars. If your photo is a finalist and is inside in the calendar, you'll receive 10 free calendars to share with your friends and family. It's a fun way to share your love of the beach — and check a few people off your holiday shopping list!

We want YOU to pick the cover shot!

We will announce finalists from all eligible photos on April 15, 2024, and after that date voters will pick the cover photo for next year’s calendar. Finalists each get 10 calendars and the cover photo winner gets 10 calendars plus a cash prize of $250.

You can enter any type of beachcombing photo: sea or beach glass, sea pottery, seashells, beach fossils, rocks, agates, driftwood, historical finds, toys, bottles, scenery, and more. Beaches can be along oceans, seas, lakes, rivers, and other bodies of water.

There will be 14 winning photos: one photo will appear on each month, one on the one-page 2026 calendar, and one photo on the cover. On April 15, 2024, you can vote for the people's choice cover shot!
