Here in the Keys, it’s hard not to find something beautiful to take a picture of every day. We’ve been amazed by some of the pictures people take of our island paradise and wanted to share their talent and images with the community. 

We’re collecting our favorite shots of the Keys and featuring the photographers in the newspaper and on our social media channels. The theme for September is KEYS PETS. Send us your best shots for a chance to be featured! 

Photos, captions and photo credit can be emailed to [email protected]

Rules, schmules:

  • All photos must be original work and feature something in the Keys. 
  • Photos can be images that have been published before.
  • No third party may own or control any materials the photo contains, and the photo must not infringe upon the trademark, copyright, moral rights, intellectual rights, or rights of privacy of any entity or person.
  • Any person agrees, by submitting photos, that photos submitted can be used by the Keys Weekly for any and all purposes, including but not limited to advertising, charity work, sales, future editorial, print in the newspapers or online or on social media posts on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and any other social media platforms as may come about.
