Sand Sculpture Trail Photo Contest

Yarmouth Sand Sculpture Trail Photo Contest Rules 2018
The sand sculptures are back in Yarmouth again this year, with a total of 33 sand sculptures located around town, beginning on Memorial Day weekend. This event is possible thanks to the generous support of the Town of Yarmouth that funds the sand sculptures, and local businesses that commission the sand sculpture artists. This year’s sand sculptures are being created by Fitzysnowman Studios.

The Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce is now organizing the highly popular Sand Sculpture Trail and Photo Contest, and we look forward to great submissions to the contest in 2018!

How to Enter the Contest

Prizes of gift certificates to local businesses (TBD) will be awarded for photos in three categories: Best Collection, Most Artistic, & Signature Photo.

Best Collection: Anyone who captures all 33 sand sculptures and follows all of the contest rules will qualify in this category.

Most Artistic: Use your imagination and creativity and come up with a really unique photo to qualify for this category.

Signature Photo 2018: You might only have time to visit a few sand sculptures. However, you can still win in this category with a high quality, creative photo that’s so good we might use it in our marketing for the photo contest for 2019!
