Dan’s Papers Photo Contest

This event has already taken place.Nov. 21, 2022 – Dec. 31, 2022, all day,

The photo featured above is none other than the grand prize winner of the first set of Dan’s Papers photo contests. Photographer Jacques LeBlanc first won our August 2021 contest for his photo “The Flag Barn” which earned him a $100 gift certificate to Calissa in Water Mill and a chance at the first set’s grand prize of becoming a Dan’s Papers cover artist. All first set winners submitted a second round of photos for cover consideration, and LeBlanc’s “The Big Duck” was chosen for the February 25, 2022 cover.

Now, get ready, local shutterbugs, because the next photo contest of the second set has begun! Each contest brings a fresh theme, a fabulous prize and a chance to be honored as a Dan’s Papers cover artist! The current theme can only be found in the photo pages of Dan’s Papers or the most recent digital edition in our issue archive at DansPapers.com/read-the-paper-online.
