Preference will be given to photos that are 300 dpi or higher, though all photos will be considered.

2020 Contest Winners

What an unusual year 2020 was! Despite the over-all decline in tourism, Alaskans got out and explored their own state that summer, and that spirit was reflected in our photo contest winners. 

2019 Contest Winners

Discover Valdez's annual photo contest debuted in 2019. That was a hot summer for Alaska, so it's no wonder so many of our photo entries were of folks finding ways to cool off at our local glaciers!
