With the August heat beating down upon us here in Brooklyn, we think it’s high time everyone head down to Coney Island! Whether it’s grabbing a delicious but terrible-for-you hot dog or screaming as you take an epic ride on the Cyclone roller coaster, we’re longing for sticky summer memories of New York City’s historic theme park.
If you’re a beach-going regular or have fond memories from long ago, we want to see your favorite images from Coney Island for our latest Squarespace call for entries. Send us your photos by August 15th to be considered. We are excited to have Jessie Wender, Senior Photo Editor at National Geographic magazine and former photo editor at The New Yorker, judge this month’s submissions.
The top three winners will receive a free one-year subscription to Squarespace, the intuitive website publishing platform that makes it simple for photographers to build creative and professional sites with their combo of award-winning designs, hosting, domains, and commerce. Selected photos will run on the Feature Shoot website and be promoted through our social media channels. Copyright remains with the photographer.
To submit, email up to five images (620 pixels wide on the shortest side, saved for web, under 300KB, no borders please) titled with your name and the number of the image (ex: yourname_01.jpg) to submissions (at) featureshoot (dot) com with “Coney Island” in the subject line. Please include your full name, website, and image captions within the body of the email.
