The Beacon’s annual Amateur Photo Contest is back! Enter your best photo portraying the Peninsula area taken in the past year. Photos will be displayed at The Peninsula Beacon booth during the June 27 Ocean Beach Street Fair.

The public will vote for their favorite pictures. And it may just be yours!

Prizes will be awarded for the top three photos, which will be published in The Peninsula Beacon.

First place will earn a $100 gift certificate to Nick’s at the Pier and second- and third-place winners will receive free tickets to their choice of the San Diego Zoo or San Diego Wild Animal Park.

Only photos taken between June ’08 and June ’09 may be entered.
