Photos

Each year the Turkey Point Light Station holds a photo contest of pictures of the lighthouse. The current year (2021) is shown on this page.  Past years can be accessed on the bottom of this page.

The rules for the Turkey Point Light Station contest for 2021 are:

1. The photo must include the Turkey Point Lighthouse.

2. The photo must be taken in 2021.

3. Photos taken by a drone are not allowed.

Photos may be submitted by email to TPLS@tpls.org or delivered to a TPLS Volunteer before the end of 15 November 2021. Please include the full name of the photographer, email address and something about the photo.

The TPLS society members will select the top three (3) photos by the last day in November.  The awardees will receive an email announcing the award and initiate coordination for the delivery of the plaques. The Maryland Park Service and TPLS Inc. have publishing rights to all submitted photos.

Each awardee will be given a corresponding plaque.

 

Submitted photos are listed below in no specific order.
