The City is holding its 3rd Annual Photo Contest and this is your opportunity to explore Hollywood with your camera, showcase your photography skills and win a prize for capturing the most quintessential Hollywood scene.  

This year, we'll celebrate our City's 90th anniversary with a new category, BEST HOLLYWOOD HISTORY PHOTO.  You can capture a photo of an historic building, site or neighborhood in Hollywood.  Or search our historic photo collection and recreate an old Hollywood photo.  

Your photo submissions must clearly depict a Hollywood, Florida scene, event or landscape of living in Hollywood that make you pleased to call the City home.

A panel of judges made of City staff and local art experts will evaluate each submission and name the top three photos. The first place winner will come away with a $200 gift card; second and third-place winners will take home $150 and $100 gift cards, respectively. A $50 gift card will be awarded to the first place winner for the children’s category (under 18). The winner in the Historical Photo category will win a $100.00 gift card. 


Photos must be submitted online or by email only. E-mail your name, address, phone number, e-mail address and high-resolution photo entry to by 5pm on Tuesday, March 31, 2015. The e-mail subject line should say "City of Hollywood Photo Contest" and the body of the e-mail should identify where in Hollywood you shot the photo. Be sure to attach the photo release form with your submission and if the participant is under 18 years old, a signed letter from an adult or guardian (see contest rules below).  Be sure to include a note identifying where in Hollywood you shot the photo, as well as the photo release form.  If the participant is under 18 years old, please include a signed letter from an adult or guardian (see contest rules below).
