Now in its second decade, this popular contest is a fun way for you to share your images of Nantucket Island. Any season, any view, any time period—we love the old photos—are accepted, as long as the photo was taken on Nantucket Island. You might even win one of the cash prizes! First prize is $175, and second is $135. Winning photos and many deserving honorable mentions will be shared with our readers in our Autumn Edition, which hits the stands on September 27. They will also be posted at after the print edition.
