We’re collecting our favorite shots of the Keys and featuring the photographers in the newspaper and on our social media channels. Our themes this month are “SALUTE OUR VETS” for Veteran’s Day and “GRATEFUL” for Thanksgiving. Thank you to all who have served our country. Send us pictures of the veterans you’d like to honor and of what makes you feel grateful with a caption about why.

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.
