Jersey Shore Photo Contest

The New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium held the annual Jersey Shore Photo Contest once again! This year we received many beautiful submissions showcasing the grandeur of the nature and sunsets we witness on the Jersey Shore. Of the 78 photos entered, 28 were selected as semifinalists, which the public then voted for the top 12 finalists!

Thanks to all the amazing photographers who entered. The twelve submissions that won the contest and will be on display in our desktop calendar. The winning photos shown below were shot in familiar locations like Sandy Hook, Bradley Beach, Seaside Heights, and many more. The 2023 desktop calendar with these dazzling nature photos will be available on
